My taste

some of the things I like

I have no idea who ever may be interested in this stuff, but I'll put it in there anyway. There are questions that intreviewers sometimes ask me, so now I'm putting down some of the answers so that from now on one can virtually interview me without actually doing it. Ah, hm, this stuff may still be partially written on Italian. The point is I'm lazy. Try Babelfish.
