Back in 2001 I will be an open book for all of you


At the end of the school in 1996, after taking advantage of expert teachers from IT companies, marketing and market surveys who had taught us Exel, world, MS database and even Frontpage, I started to develop my website.

Internet was still very slow and to download or see an image or a photo it took from fifteen minutes to an hour but it was nice to be able to create images, assemble them and make a page visible to anyone; show my opinions and what I wrote to the whole world; speak and discuss without problems with scientists, researchers, professors and directors of the best American schools and research centers, but what worried was the Millennium bug.

The millennium bug is a informatic error in the representation of the dates of many computers and software that used only two decimal digits, including from 00 to 99, to store the year assuming as a starting point the year 1900.

Sentient robots and singularity


Now then, let's see ... Who remembers this robot?

Probably it is a very difficult question for those who have less than 20 or even 25 years, but I can certainly say that it is also for those who have my age or who is even bigger. I confess, in fact, that I had put this robot into oblivion, even if, as a boy, I tried to record it with the VCR a lot of times without success.

For the younger generation, it is necessary to specify that the VCR was an electronic gizmo with which it was possible to record to a VHS tape a specific TV program (films, TV series, quiz ...) by programming the switching on and off at certain times, or registering what was on the TV screen ... a sort of great-grandfather of current digital recorders, except that instead of saving on a hard disk (which is able to accommodate a hundred or a thousand movies), it recorded on a support such as magnetic tape and to have 100 movies was necessary to provide an appropriate library.

Poetry: I have the blood of volcano lava


Poetry recommended for adults!


I have the blood of volcano lava

welcome Miss

I warned you well:

I have my blood boiling

like lava from a volcano,

but you came anyway.

You are here, now, at the entrance,

at door you looks tiny,

you look at me with eyes lost.

Do not hesitate, try to enter
