Hi, I'm Simone
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 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...

Steam on XMPP
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, reachable here.
XMPP Gateways: Slidge
- Whatsapp Gateway: connect to your Whatsapp account and sync contacts/groups
- Telegram Gateway: same as Whatsapp but for your Telegram account
- Steam Gateway: connect to Steam and sync your contacts/private conversations
To discover these services from XMPP you need a client like Gajim (maybe Cheogram will work as well)
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"
