For this user:Search nodes

and welcome to my homenode. This node has been edited in June 2020. Let me introduce myself, with a brief


My real name is Alessandro Melillo, and I'm Italian. I was born in 1974 and I'm an architect, a teacher and an urban sketcher; for a hobby, I code Perl, mess around with hardware and skate my deck.
I started Using Linux in 1994 and never stopped. Someday the world will be better than today.
I was the webmaster of, the GulP! Website, that's the Linux User Group of my hometown, Piombino. GulP stopped being active many years ago
Brother jcwren was gently hosting our site until his major server breakdown, so ++ for jcwren!

Misc notes

My signature is the theme of one of my posts, and you'll easily find it in the list of my posts. For those lazy guys out there, here it is:


perl -le 's ssSss.s sSsSiss.s s$ .$s\107ss.print'

but no spoiler: reverse it or look at the original post which discloses it!

However, as I have always been used to sign emails with an abbreviation of my real name, there's another obfuscated signature which prints it, and here it is:

perl -le 's ssAss.s s$slss.s slsl-l-l-lss.s s$sSss.s s.$sss.s s-l-l-lse-ss.print'

Finally, as I practice skateboarding, I was so incredibly stupid to code a s‎crip‎t which skates for you, lazy guys (still you...) who won't skate at all for all your damn life. It contains a pretty formatted block, in the shape of a skateboard, which actually hides an obfuscated secret screen for real high scores! Enjoy it!

My Location is:

Latitude: 43.974712 East
Longitude: 10.196798 North
And you can spot me on the monkmap generated by OeufMayo's s‎crip‎t!

That's all Folks!
