A few days ago, I was browsing meetup.com looking for front-end web-development meetups in my area (Milan, Italy) and to my surprise, I found none. There were a few quite specialized ones like M&M Mean Milan, MeteorJS Milano or MongoDB Milan, but I couldn’t fine a more generic one where people could talk about front-end in general.

I have been working on a comprehensive and secure htaccess file to be used with a WordPress install – I have uploaded it on Github, check it out and contribute if you wish. (note – it forces https access, be sure to disable that part if you don’t need it).
Over the last year I’ve grown increasingly tired of the previous “dark” theme of my site; not that it was THAT bad, it actually did the job, but I felt it didn’t convey enough of what makes myself… well, myself.

Precise Pangolin (version 12.04) has been a great Ubuntu release. It was the successor to another great release, one that will probably go down in history as the best release ever, 10.04 Lucid Lynx. Until 14.04, that is.
