About the site

Welcome to Valerio Di Giampietro's personal web site and blog

I'm an Electronic Engineer with almost 20 years of experience in the field of IT management, Network and Unix System Administration, Telecommunications and Digital Electronics.
In this modest web site you will find:

  • In the Linux & AS/400 page you will find articles and scripts that I wrote and used to download and convert AS/400 database files and other related informations.
  • In the I and Linux page you will find information on my early involvement with Linux (since 1993).
  • Essential and suggested Freeware Unix Programs on my toolbox. This page is unfinished (was under construction for many years) and is quite outdated
  • In the About me page you will find information about myself, my job and my family. At the moment the only information available is essential and suggested books on my technical bookshelf. I wrote this page for the first time about 10 years ago and later I moved to more managerial and less technical job, so this section wasn't updated and can seem a bit old.
  • In the About the site page you will find information on how I realized this site.
  • In the Blog section you can find my personal blog related mainly to technical issues I worked on including realization of this web site

I'am also a linux enthusiast since 1993 and an active member of the on line community since 1989.

Web site history: my second personal web site (1999-2005)

My second personal web site (1999-2005)
In 1999 I registered the domain digiampietro.com, switched my hosting company to WestHost.com and revamped my website. At the time dynamic content was not so popular and very few hosting companies supported dynamic content in their cheapest hosting offerings; Microsoft FrontPage was popular but I disliked it. After a bit of research I found a good solution in WML (Website Meta Language) an html scripting language that easily allowed the generation of a static web site with a consistent look & feel and navigation bar.

Web site history: my first personal web site (1996-1999)

My first personal web site in 1996
I published a personal web site for the first time in January 1996, subscribing, for a small fee for this service (no free hosting available at the time). The web site had few simple html pages, the most important page was my resume!. These pages had the following features:
  • manually written html
