The S.T.E.A.L. Saga

The S.T.E.A.L. Saga is one of my pet projects since 1997. It’s a series of novels (three planned) written by me and my brother Marco (who did the story planning). I started writing in Italian, but since no one cared about it on the internet, I decided to switch to English, which at least will make it understandable for more people. After a long time, I found the young but very talented artist Too, and he was able to provide very nice artwork to complement my own writing. Basically this project aims to create illustrated novels, a format very common in Japan but rather rare outside of that country.

The first two books have been already published (through a print on demand service). I have put up a separate web page to host all the project related news.

Python scripts

Due to my own work, I’m writing a series of Python scripts to automate the annotation of genes with biological data, using publicly available resources. Once they are polished enough I plan to release them to the public under the GNU GPL, version 2.

I also have written a small script to filter desktop wallpapers based on their size or aspect ratio. It’s mostly a toy program, but if you’re curious, try it out!
