Proud owner of this thing
Hi, I have been christened Elvis, my brother got luckier as he was christened Christian.
I was born in Italy on the 9th day of February of the faithful year 1982, a non remarkable Tuesday in what Wikipedia identifies as a non remarkable period for humanity.
I live in Norway. I speak Italian, a bit of English, some French when drunk, survival things in Chinese, only useless stuff in Norwegian, I could understand some Spanish if drunk (unless I'm speaking French that night).
I have been a programmer since the beginning of the millennium and my linkedIn page could tell you a lot of lies about it.
Most of my time I have been a slave of the internet writing websites, web applications, a lot of APIs, then mobile apps, but I have also been pestered by game and software development, integrations of all sorts across platforms, languages, companies and apparently all I seem to be good at is refactoring and debugging (or I wouldn't be asked to do that all the time). I got experience and learned the hard way, as nature intended, from painful mistakes. It is therefore safe to assume that I am closer to a Carpenter than an Engineer as I know more than I have been taught (but you could say the same of a jellyfish).
I firmly believe that the guy that invented the wheel was an idiot and no way as influential as the guy that put four of them together. I follow standards that look sane, avoid all others.
If I am not coding I'm translating Marketing requirements into human specs. I don't understand users nor I want to meet any, but I am in continuous contact with people that firmly believe they do.
I have no education in the field as my biases towards Academia have been shaped by Asimov and Pratchett: they scared me so much that I did all I could not to have Education interfere with my Learning.
I am an artist and I love music (heavy or stupid stuff) and I play many instruments. I am not good at any of them, contrary to my wife, a professional classical pianist.
I write, draw and work with wood, but my creations normally end up in flames for arcane reasons that are beyond my understanding.
I am a gamer, but lately back to retro arcade thanks to the Pi.
This are my choices whenever a dichotomy is posed upon me:
|MY CHOICE||IF MY LIFE WAS AT STAKE|
|Star Trek||Star Wars|
|Death Metal||Whatever kids listen to nowadays|
|Kawaii Metal||!?! Never seen this in a dichotomy !?!|
|Movies before the year 2000||I don't know what happened after The Matrix|
|Sci-fi||Anything with love in it|
|Fantasy||Anything with love in it|
|Getting bored||Wasting my time on a phone|
There is one point missing in the table above: curly brackets on a new line, but even if my life depended on it that would not be my choice.
I am much nicer in person than in writings as I am told I am not able to express sarcasm with emojis (I also don't have emoji on my keyboard). For instance it should be known that I like humanity, it's people I can't stand.
I like funny quotes and laugh at inspirational ones.
There are many ways to contact me, but first ask yourself if you should do that, I mean I have time to waste, but do you?
Also this is a hidden page, and by the way who goes around looking for info on the author of a post? I mean who cares, right? What do you want to know? A nicer about me is probably lying somewhere in this website, but if you expect me to point you to it you didn't get the gist of this, isn't it?
