Every now and then, when I need it for some project, I write software, usually for Web applications or for Linux system administration. Here I collect the software that I managed to package and distribute; use it at your own risk - I don't have time neither to help users, nor to write better documentation than the one you find in these pages.
The applications in these pages, unless differently specified, are distributed under free software modalities: you are free to examine and modify this software, as long as you make available to everyone your edits. If you further develop these applications, please keep me informed so that we can avoid duplication of work.
Most of my recent software still needs to be packaged - sorry about that.

Gimg (version 1.2, 13/5/2000)

This software was developed between 1995 and 1998, when I was a University student and a webmaster as a hobby, in an age when there was no PHP, no MySQL and no free content management systems. As technologies change, possibly this software is useless if not for study.
Note: The software here below is distributed under the GNU General Public License version 2, even if you find other indications in the packages - I didn't have time to fix them all.TWMK (Templates WebMagick) (version 1.2)
