Hi, I'm Simone

AKA roughnecks


About Me

My nickname was borrowed from "Starship Troopers" - A military science fiction novel by U.S. writer Robert A. Heinlein. "roughnecks" is the name of the first Mobile Infantry Squad led by Rico. I'm still not sure why I chose a plural name for my persona; it's a bit odd, I reckon, but I got attached to it and it stuck.
I'm currently unemployed, mainly because of health issues, but I studied and worked for a bit in IT Department; that's still one of my greatest passions, along with PC Gaming. I consider myself as an eternal noob - in both categories - since there's always something new to learn and things often get more complicated over the years.

PC MasterRace

I like RPG, Simulation, Racing, FPS, Turn Based Strategy, Narrative, Point & Click, Space and Card Games but I kinda play almost every genre. I'm not good at Fast-Paced and Stealth Games, RTS, Platformers and most probably something else too. I don't like Trivia, Match3, Word Games, Clickers, Mobile-Ports, Time Management, Flash Games, MMO and a few others for sure.
Also, I don't play so much as of lately...

Matrix Server

I'm hosting a private Matrix instance, mostly for myself but it's also open for friends. Registrations are closed to the public, so you need a sort of invitation to be able to sign-up.
If you want to check how a Matrix chat server looks like, you can connect to the Element Client which is also hosted locally on my server: your connection is private and secure.
You will connect as a guest and may look around some rooms, but to join the conversation you'll have to sign-up. No phone number is needed and you can also skip email as registration detail, but the system won't be able to recover your password in case you lose it, if no email address is provided.

Bridges and Bots

There are 3 bridges and 3 bots on this Matrix server: bridges are used to connect to different chat services from within Matrix, so you own all of your conversations with a single client.

Bots are utility services which can do some tasks for you. There are 3 bots hosted on this server:

XMPP Server

I'm also hosting an XMPP server, which is basically a decentralized and secure chat service. Like for Matrix, I'm doing this just for myself and friends who'd like to join, so public registrations are closed and you need an invite to join.
The registration process is quite easy, your generated invite link will take you to the basic steps of choosing a client - there are many for each platform, Windows, Linux, Web, Android, iOS and MacOS - and sign-up, or just let you sign-up if you already have a preferred client.
A Web Client is also hosted locally on my server, reachable here.

If you want to join any of these services or have any question, scroll down below to the "Contacts" section and send me a message, I'll be glad to help you out!

Standalone BoTs

I'm also running 5 standalone bots:
