Multilingual text to speech from googleFri, 7 Feb 14
Use the text to speech software from Google Translate. Only one voice but multilingual and very easy. Simply past in the browser this example:"Curse of the Pharaohs"
Change "en" as preferred language ("it", "fr", "es", ...) and text to be read. Voice is promptly downloaded as MP3 file.

Remotely PHP archive extractTue, 15 Jan 13
This thing has just saved my life, the world should know: to extract an archive from a remote web server without ssh access but only a web and php interface, you can use: kickstart!.
Very useful for kickstart a web server from a zip file.

Believing that GIF was dead in modern times?
This photographer makes hi-res images with little movement in it, tipical of old times GIF. Cool result.
ATnT blocks linux users!Wed, 15 Dec 10
The good old times of network indipendence and neutrality are everyday threatened from everywhere. Now this news that the main ISP AT&T is somewhat limiting home users to access internet from operating system different from MS Windows and Apple.
Really GNU/Linux users are causing trouble to AT&T? is that a joke?
And if you are using (i.e. myself) FreeBSD at home?
Fortunately I don't have AT&T, but I find it unacceptable...
Berners-Lee about net neutralityTue, 23 Nov 10
An interesting article of Tim Berners-Lee about the division of Web and Internet and the loosing of Web neutrality and open content, because of the growing of commercial "closed" web-like services. Read it on Scientific American.
If interested on the subject, NEXA organise at Turin the annual conference about Internet and society on sunday 27 november.
