about me

John M is a Linux fan in Lowell, MA.

I work at at a company writing software. I fool around with Free and Open Source software for fun & profit.

I was big into and you can still see some of what I listen to there. I can also be found using github and recently sourcehut as well as bitbucket (historically). I don't care for most popular social media sites. If I have an account on one or the other it's probably either old and unused or was created just for tinkering.


Links to things I like, use, or otherwise feel is worth sharing. Things I'd like to see get more popular. Suggests Suggests is an Amarok script designed to allow the user to view a list of artists that considers similar to any artist in the current playlist. Use the right-click menu on a track to have Amarok display the list.

The script requires my amarok conveince library, and my webservices library, which are both included in the download. The current version requires Amarok 1.4.2 and up.

For more information see the script's page.


Current Version
Python 2.4+
Amarok 1.4.2+ (not including 2x)
