Copertura Fibra Ottica in Italia

16 Lug 16

L’ossessione per la copertura FTTC negli ultimi anni sta aumentando, proprio perchè l’infrastruttura internet italiana è stata eccessivamente trascurata negli ultimi decenni e l’utilizzo moderno di internet è sempre più “bandivoro”.

Per chi non ha la fortuna di vivere nei principali centri italiani, sa benissimo che è difficile rimanere aggiornati sulla possibilità di avere un accesso internet più performante.

Motivo per cui ho voluto creare il sito per la Copertura Fibra Ottica in Italia, proprio per aiutare le persone a rimanere costantemente aggiornate sulla copertura in fibra ottica nella propria città.

E’ online da maggio 2015, ed un po’ alla volta ci aggiungo features sempre più interessanti..

Fatevi un giro 😉

I rewrote this post too many times reaching the conclusion that I must be (as always) less verbose and more conclusive. I started writing an open letter to the HR Managers, but since I don’t like people who write things they don’t know, I followed a simple rule: just talk about your experience. And so, I did.

Basically what I wanted to say is: your best candidate (not talking of management positions) doesn’t need to match all the points you’ve listed into the job posting.

The best candidate just needs to be:

Temporarily unreachable – Google Search Console GWT

26 Mar 16

Are you getting struggled from the Temporarily unreachable error into your Google Webmaster Tools – Search Console?

It’s unbelievable that if you google this problem you will only find the obvious: “don’t worry, it’s a temporary problem”, or “your site is penalized

Well, in my case, everything that I found on the web didn’t fit with my situation.

New domain, new server, and since I used CloudFlare to cache everything I was worried that the problem was really CloudFlare itself.

I checked everything: DNS, Server Connection, Routing issues, etc. –  without any luck.

Big Data is like teenage sex

Big Data quote of the Day (old but gold)

Big data is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it

ETIMEDOUT nodejs mysql

28 Feb 16

Hi man,
If you came here searching for an error like this: “Error: connect ETIMEDOUT at Connection._handleConnectTimeout” when querying a MySQL server using node, maybe you’re in the right place 🙂

Are you using node-mysql? Drop it away and switch to node-mysql2.

Why? Well, maybe there’s an explicable reason, but in my case I couldn’t find any reasonable reason 🙂

This is what I tried before switching to node-mysql2:

  • increased connection timeout on node-mysql
  • increased connection timeout on mysql server
  • several code modification without any luck

If you have other guesses, please be my guest and leave a comment!
