Birch Street Computing -

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.

Weekly Roundup - Need a better naming scheme edtion

I feel old.

I hate game companies and the platforms I don't have. I simply refuse to waste money (or compromise my uptime) to waste time, even if is fun.

These signs are cool.
