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.

My Home Directory

My home directory as seen by filelight. My collection of movies grows with every episode of heroes I record off of the tv. I'm ripping more DVDs too, since its more convenient to have them on disk.

My personal disk usage

My music collection takes up a lot of space too. The Storage dir is dominated by a bunch of disk & filesystem images for qemu and other oddball experiments.
