Did you know that students on Earth can remotely capture images from the International Space Station? The EarthKAM program allows students to request photographs of specific Earth features, like this stunning photo of the northwest corner of Australia. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/1Mss2fu

I never understood this kind of irony, saying something is bad while in truth is gorgeous.

Milan is my hometown and, although not everything is as beautiful as they wants you to see it, I should say that it's surely a place worth to see.

Ugh, that place is just the worst.

Che tristezza, leggendo certi articoli.


Praticamente tutto fa venire il cancro... anche cibi, materiali o mestieri che sono stati la vita dei nostri nonni che, chissà come, hanno campato cent'anni.

Introduction

Ciao a tutti, mi chiamo Paolo, alias Samvise. Un soprannome un pò curioso, non vi pare? Tutto é iniziato anni fa, quando intrapresi per la prima volta la strada telematica... feci parte di un Net amatoriale inspirato al romanzo "Il Signore degli Anelli" di Tolkien, RingNet appunto, ed é proprio lì che assunsi questo alias.

Classe 76, ho sempre vissuto in Italia, se escludiamo alcune brevi parentesi lavorative e turistiche. Di formazione tecnica, ho iniziato a usare i computer già da 9 anni, scrivendo piccoli programmi in Basic su un tascabile Sanco TPC-8300, per poi passare a un Apple //c e quindi ad un PC.

Inizialmente programmavo solo in Basic, poi ho provato il Logo (a scuola, che ricordi!), il Pascal, l'assembler, il Visual Basic, per arrivare infine al puro e semplice C. Non visual nonsochediavolocosa, ma il puro e semplice C che, con la scoperta di Unix, ho proficuamente integrato con quelli che sono gli standard posix, iniziando così a parlare anche di fork e non solo di printf ;)

Conosco anche il php, il python e la gestione di database (in particolare mysql e postgresql ).

Ho studiato dapprima elettrotecnica, per poi cambiare "in corsa" e finire in elettronica.

Dal punto di vista lavorativo ho fatto un pò di  tutto, dall'operaio all'operatore di call-center, dal tecnico manutentore al  sistemista informatico, dal progettista elettronico per finire oggi nel mondo dell’aviazione.

I miei interessi  sono molteplici, e spesso focalizzati sull'aspetto tecnico delle cose, ma non solo.  Gli hobby di tutti i giorni sono fai-da-te, fotografia, modellismo (in particolare ferroviario, ADORO i treni), ma quando c'è  l'occasione mi piace anche viaggiare, camminare in montagna, andare al cinema, al  ristorante o andare a un concerto.  Ho provato vari sport, e l'unico che mi riesce decentemente é lo sci, anche se ultimamente non lo pratico più di tanto.

Mi piace molto anche la musica. Ascolto un pò di tutto, dalla lirica al metal, con pop e rock i generi più ascoltati. I Toto sono il mio gruppo preferito, ed un tempo suonavo con i GGM, il migliore gruppo di amici ch'io abbia mai avuto. Sono anche appassionato di computer graphic e mi diletto a fare piccoli fotomontaggi, anche se non disdegno il disegno tecnico con il CAD.

Sono stato negli scout Agesci per quasi 6 anni ed ho imparato ad apprezzare il "fai da te" e la vita libera. Apprezzo la forchetta e si, un bagaglio di troppo c’è, ma fortunatamente non é troppo esagerato.

Sono donatore di sangue presso l'AVIS Milano e per anni sono stato volontario presso la Croce Bianca Milano, associazione di volontariato e pubblica assistenza.

Hello everybody, I’m Paolo, alias Samvise. A funny nickname, don’t you think so? Everything has begun several years ago, when for the first time I used a bbs… I was member of an amateurial network inspired at the fantasy romance “The Lord of The Rings” from JRR Tolkien, RingNet, and it was there that I first took this nick.

Born in the ’76, I always lived in Italy, except few digressions for work and tourism. Of a technical background, I started using computers already at 9 years old, writing little Basic programs on a pocket Sanco TPC-8300, to switch later on to an Apple //c and ultimately to a PC.

Initially I coded only in Basic, then I tried Logo (at school, what memories!), then Pascal, Assembler, Visual Basic, to eventually land at the pure and simple C. Not visual IdontKnowWhat, but simple C which, with the discovery of Unix, I successfully integrated with some posix standards, thus starting to write fork and not just printf ;)

I know also php, python and database management (in detail MySQL and PostgreSQL).

I first studied electrotechnics, to change “on the way” and end up with an electronic degree.

From a working perspective I did a bit of everything, from factory worker to call center operator, from engineer technician to network administrator, from electronic R&D to end up today in the aviation world.

My interests are many, and often focalized on the technical aspect of things, but not only. My everyday hobbies are DIY, photography, scale models (expecially model railways, I LOVE trains), but if there’s the right occasion I also like travelling, hiking the mountains, watch a movie, and going at the restaurant or attend a concert. I tried many sports and the only one that I can manage decently is skiing, although lately I don’t do it too often.

I like music a lot. I listen everything, from opera to metal, with pop and rock among the most favourite genders. Toto are my favourite band, and time ago I used to play with GGM, the best friends' group that I ever had. I also enjoy computer graphic and now and then I like making little photomontages, although now and then I also like doing technical drawings with CAD.

I have been in the boy scouts for about 6 years and I learned to appreciate the DIY and the free life. I enjoy eating and yes, I have some extra baggage, but luckily it’s not too exaggerated.

I am a blood donor and for years I have been volunteer in the Ambulance EMS (Something similar to paramedic, although with less qualifications).

Hallo, ich bin Paolo. Obwohl ich ein bisschen Deutsch sprechen, meine Fähigkeiten in diesem wunderbaren Sprache wirklich niedrig ist.

Also bitte, wenn Sie können, schreib mir bitte in Englisch, danke.

你好我係Paolo(保羅). 我的老婆教我講小廣東話.

因為我的廣東話係唔好,寫我英文,唔該.
