Pressapochista terms does not exist in english: in italian is something like roughly, more or less, laziness, carelessness.
In this blog I will try to overcome an unfairness that I’ve been taking advantage of for many years: that is, to give back something of what has been given to me by many computer fans through the Internet (that is a lot: a job to start with …).
Infact I could have done nothing without having read the thousands of articles and how-to around the web and that people simply animated by enthusiasm have written and made freely available to anyone.
For this reason I decided to write in this blog about something I know: information technology and telephone systems used in the small to medium sized companies (including even some programming in different languages).
This is my area, and this is where I think I have got something to say!
I’ll say it from the start: I am not a Linux fan, in the same way that I’m not one of Microsoft systems, and for this reason, the articles will reflect this approach. In my job I generally use the latter ones, and I almost always try to suggest the first ones. There’s no point in making a lot of philosophy: in the corporate world the common computer language is Microsoft’s, for a variety of reasons that there’s no point in making a comment about and that anyway most of you will probably know better than me (reasons that don’t include the supposed better performance)! But when it’s possible I do use Linux, primarily as a supplement/support to the information system, making the most of the lower cost, the greater possibility of customization, and last but not least, the better performance!
Another important assumption: my articles will be full of blunders and of gross mistakes(hence the name of the blog). These are work notes, and they have to be taken for what they are! If you don’t understand something you should let me know: I’ll try to fix it. Please consider that my “work field” attempts to range from PC maintenance to the Nortel/Avaya IP telephony platform! As you can imagine the field is too broad to really have a truly in-depth competence in something: actually we can talk about pressapochistica knowledge for many subjects.
In addition, to further justify the title of the blog, I must point out that many excellent computer experts use the famous analytical method known as “test here-move there- let’s see the effect that it has”: some peddle the method as “empirical evidence”, but they are always pressapochistici attempts to find the solution. So the already mentioned title should not offend: it’s just a way to pay tribute to a method of analysis usually applied in the world of computers. The fact is that the above-mentioned analytical method almost always works, and hardly never we get to know why.
Unfortunately work commitments make it difficult for me to follow your questions or problems: if you really can’t come out of it I can offer a consultancy service (against the paying of a fee). Write to me, indicating the subject and I will send you a price budget. Sorry for the frankness, but it is useless to make promises that I know I cannot keep.
Last, but not least: I will try to write in English, but the my English is very poor. I apologize for the many errors that I will write, but another purpose of the blog is to improve my English !
