274 git
231 vi
131 u
130 q
101 find
94 time
86 grep
79 svn

Some clarifications:

  • l” is an alias for “ls -lhA --color
  • u” is an alias for “cd ..
  • q” is an alias for “exit” (I also use CTRL-D for that)
  • time” is there because I use “time make” to see how much time I need to compile things

Blogs, politicians and stupidity

“People who open a blog should be identifiable and they should ask people writing comments to be identifiable too.”
— Maurizio Gasparri, from punto-informatico.it

Do I have to use my passport every time I write a comment on a blog? And what do I have to do if the server is hosted in another country?

The sad thing about this is that Gasparri is not just a random ignorant politician: he is the former Italian Minister of Communications, and maybe also the next one as his party is probably going to win the elections on Sunday.

Speaking of which, yesterday I watched a report on BBC about Italian elections and now I’m very sad :'(.
