What can I ask you?
You can ask whatever you want but probably you’ll receive satisfying answers about the following topics:
- Internet and social media good practice
- Basic technical issues about html+css coding
- WordPress or other CMS customisation
- Excel and Google spreadsheet calculators
- How to use web tools
- How to write for the web – I’ve also ran a workshop (in Italian) about that
- How to professional promote myself online
I like to be challenged so call me even just to talk with someone about your trouble, sometimes say it loud is the first step to get to a solution.
Can I see some examples of what you have done for others?
I’ve started to live with my girlfriend so we had to calculate how to divide the costs so I’ve create the Monthly cost living calculator template.
Also my girlfriend due health issues, needed to keep track of everything she ate and everything she expelled so we created:
- Rettocoliteulcerosa.tumblr.com – a daily food tracker blog where she tells also her experience
- Stool tacker – a simple form to fill to keep track of the frequency and other parameter of the stools evacuated
- Paleozona diet calculator – a calculator that helps her to find the exact grams of food to eat to stricly follow this kind of diet.
I have create the website of my band and also found a way to distribute our songs on all major online services like Amazon, Itunes etc.. thanks to an external service called cdbaby. I’ve also took care of the physical production of our cd by adopting an eco friendly DIY (do it yourself) approach.
I’ve helped several people with their trouble of any kind with wordpress or html+css, images that didn’t resize automatically, malware attack to their websites, websites creation for free, how to start to publish articles online etc…
How much it costs?
It costs nothing, I help people for free.
Anyway I invest my free time to find or build solutions so I accept voluntary donations of any kind from the people that feels grateful for what we have built together. It is a little way to give me the opportunity to dedicate always more time to this activity.
A donation can be everything, not necessarily money, I love art, music, food and I always need services to find new solutions for the people that asks me help. If you are a baker, a developer, a lawyer or a salesman doesn’t matter, if you feel helped from me you can donate some of your spare time doing what you can do best to help me help other people.
Why do you do this?
I help people for free because I strongly believe that the only way to change the world where we live starts from us.
I don’t know who you are. Or whether you’re a man or a woman. I may never see you or cry with you or get drunk with you. But I love you.

How is it started?
My wise grandfather (That is 80+ years old BTW) struggling with his Kindle one day told me:
Tobia, we need to find a way to use internet to help others, out there it is so full of people that would like some kind of help in everyday issues and don’t know who to call…
So everything started and after his Kindle was fixed by my uncle.
How many problems have you solved?
I don’t really know but a lot and the counter is still running, I really hope it will stops as later as possible.
I have a legal issue, can I ask to solve it?
You can but my answer will be to consult a good lawyer, at last I can suggest some good one related to your problem.
I don’t believe that you are so generous
I’m not generous, I’m trying to live a better life giving back what I received from the people that I’ve met. What I have are my experiences and my skills so this is what I offer to you.
Are you doing everything alone?
Not at all, luckily I’m full of friends that helps me to find solutions in different fields so every time that I don’t know where to start there is someone that suggests me how to begin in the same way I’ll do with you.
Can you always find a solution?
No but I always try, the biggest part come from you, how much you want to find it and how many time you are willing to invest in its search.
Do you help everyone?
Based on the time that I have available, I have my own work and a personal life so my resources are limited. I help one people a time, that’s the only way that I have to do it.
Do you answer to everyone?
Yes, even if I don’t have time to follow your issue at least I’ll give you an answer in 48 hours.
Do you feel so special to help everyone?
No, I feel like everyone else full of irrisolveble problems but as Einstein said
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity
so I always cheer me up and put a smile on my face, what I try to do is to give some of this optimism to everyone in the journey to find the solution. This is my real specialty.
Is this your full time job?
No because it is not a job, I work as website manager for Moravia, specifically I’m working as outsource resource for support.microsoft.com.
Anyway I have to mention that this project is not related in anyway to my professional career.
Can I help you?
Yes, please contact me and tell me what you are good at and I’ll be happy to use some of your spare time to make feel someone else (or even myself) better.
