About me

Hell of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is the one that is already here, the hell that we live in every day, that we form by being together. There are two ways to avoid suffering for it. The first is easy for many: accepting hell and becoming part of it to the point of no longer seeing it. The second is risky and requires constant attention and learning: seeking and knowing how to recognize who and what, in the midst of hell, is not hell, and make it last, and give it space.

Italo Calvino, The invisible cities

To understand the reason for the nickname xlthlx, ring this old post, or you can see the small Xlthlx in the Doodle that Google had dedicated to Italo Calvino.

I love science fiction, surreal jokes, music, movies, TV series, theatre, reading, writing, counting, and, most of all, tech toys.
My current technology family consists of an Android, a Pixel 6 Pro, a Kindle Paperwhite, and a refurbished Dell Latitude 7390 13.3-inch, also known as the Sandman; I always use my Bose Sleepbuds II, even when travelling, and I can no longer do without my IQOS ILUMA.

My passion for make-up has exploded in the last few years, even if my wallet has never been pleased with it. Sometimes, I write about it in a downright unprofessional way.

Since January 31, 2015, I have lived and worked in London with my half sweet.
On October 23 2021, we joined a civil partnership.

I forgot: it seems that my profession is Senior Web Developer.
I have also written some technical posts about it, but nothing serious: I have done that job only since 1998.
