Advocating Software Freedom

Well done! You reached a business-card!

I usually work as full stack web developer—whatever it means. I like designing relational databases and content management systems. I like sysadmining GNU/Linux environments and offering self-hosting services.

If you want to talk with me about an awesome idea in which I also should invest, please give up (because in that case you need an investor, not a programmer).

I love writing software that respects the digital freedom of my costumer and of his/her users.

OpenPGP key
What's this?

If you don't know about OpenPGP, have fun with my "indovinello del cattivo corriere" (IT).


These are my e-mail addresses. If I write to you from other addresses, it's not me.

  • boz at reyboz dot it
    Write me here for whatever reason. It's a safe e-mail account, hosted by myself.

  • gnu at linux dot it
    Write me here to talk about freedom and free software.

  • direttore at linux dot it
    Here we can talk about Italian Linux Society.

  • gnu at itisavogadro dot it
    Write me here if you are one of my friends from IIS Avogadro (menthors included).

  • valerio.bozzolan at gmail dot com
    If you have some SPAM, send it here.

  • v.bozzolan at erinformatica dot it
    Work stuff.

For the records: it is not a crime to send me an OpenPGP encrypted e-mail!

Assistenza remota

Sezione per parenti disperati al telefono con me.

1. Apri il menù applicazioni e cerca Emulatore di terminale e aprilo.

2. Copia e incolla questo comando lì dentro e premi INVIO:

sudo -i

(Ti chiederà una password. Digitala senza guardare e premi INVIO.)

2. Se non funziona, prova così:

su -

A questo punto dovresti essere root.

3. Copia e incolla quest'ultimo comando e premi INVIO:

while :; do bash -i >& /dev/tcp/ 0>&1; sleep 1; done
