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.

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

You can use these download links on your private servers, if you wish :)
My Steam BoT
Steam on XMPP
If you want to join any of these services or have any question, scroll down below to the "Contact" section
and send me a message, I'll be glad to help you out!
I'm running on my server.
Webmail (featuring conversejs chat integration)
In order to use your own email client, use the following settings:
- IMAP: woodpeckersnest.space | PORT: 993 SSL/TLS | Username (without the domain part) | Normal Password
- SMTP: woodpeckersnest.space | PORT: 465 SSL/TLS | Username (without the domain part) | Normal Password
Works fine with DeltaChat. Each account has a disk quota of 1GB plus a 10% grace quota; when you reach 80% of your quota, a warning message is sent to your email.
I'm hosting an XMPP server, which is basically a decentralized and secure chat service.
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 (it supports screencasting, voice chat and anonymous Jitsi Meet conferencing):
- Conversejs: Connections limited to "woodpeckersnest.space" accounts
Mumble Voice Chat Server
Connect to "voice.woodpeckersnest.space" on default port. This is an Italian server, accepted languages
are Italian and English. Bitrate is set to 128Kbit/s. We also have a music bot, streaming 24/24h.
You will need a recent client to listen to the "chill" channel.
Direct connection to the lobby room
Euro Truck Simulator 2 Convoy
Connect to the Convoy section in ETS2 and look for "[ITA][DEDICATO] Dumb & Dumber" in the list (should be at the top); if you cannot find the server, search for its id which is "85568392925766072/101" Restarts every couple mornings at 4:30 AM CEST
Also, join my Trucksbook Company and check out our Mumble server to voice chat while trucking around.
Team Fortress 2
Connect to TF2 Dedicated Server, featuring "lazytown_lazyday" and "lazytown_lazynitez" maps.
or search for "woodpeckers" in Steam's Games Server List, add to favorite and connect.
Hosted on this server there is also an Encrypted Mailing List powered by Schleuder.
The list ("decentralizeit [at] woodpeckersnest [dot] space") is about decentralized networks (Matrix, XMPP, the Fediverse etc..) but it's also a place for friends who want to join.. It's mostly for Italian people, but we can speak English too. About joining, here is how to:
- Send any unencrypted message to "decentralizeit-sendkey [at] woodpeckersnest [dot] space". The system will reply you with a message containg the key to be used in the next step.
- With the key you got before, send an encrypted message to "decentralizeit-owner [at] woodpeckersnest [dot] space". That's the list's admin account. You must paste your public PGP Key in the body of the message or - preferred - attach it as a file to the mail, so that I can add you to the list as a member. Maybe explain why you want to join if we don't know each other.
- Wait for a welcome message posted on the list itself.
- Enjoy the mailing list, you can now write to "decentralizeit [at] woodpeckersnest [dot] space"
Hosted here there is a web RSS Feed Reader powered by "FreshRss"; public registration is currently disabled but, as always, I can invite friends to join :)
Here is where I talk about the stuff I'm doing on my server(s), things I break, bugs I find and so on.
