Luca Saiu

I am a computer scientist, free software hacker and GNU maintainer.

Among other things I am an Atheist. There used to be a longer summary of my positions in this paragraph, but the deep disgust I have developed for every single mainstream stance has convinced me to avoid pledging any allegiance.

About me

More information about who I am and what I do.


This page explains how you can write me or meet me.


All of my published software since the early 2000s is free software. Here you can find information about my more ambitious projects such as GNU Jitter, GNU epsilon and Marionnet.

Minor hacks

Here you can find some minor or old hacks, of course released as free software they they are software at all.

Public keys

You can verify that my GPG-signed messages actually come from me, and get my SSH public keys in case you want to let me access your machines.

About this server

Other than some private services not intended for public use my server handles this web site and my mail infrastructure. The server also hosts a Gemini capsule at gemini://ageinghacker.net and a Gopher hole at gopher://ageinghacker.net. I plan to set up a GNUnet node at some point. The machine hosts a small Tor exit node, for the benefit of the global community. Tor and GNUnet relay services connect to the outside world from their own IP address, accessible as tor-and-gnunet-readme.ageinghacker.net.

This machine is a VPS hosted by OrangeWebsite in Iceland. Even if the VPS works well I no longer recommend OrangeWebsite to others, since OrangeWebsite disrupted my SMTP service multiple times, treated me badly and did not apologise. Instead I am now recommending 1984 Hosting and FlokiNET as both technically superior and cheaper alternatives to OrangeWebsite, run by people with better respect for their customers.
