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 - Part Two

True to my word! I'm writing another entry.

  • Food: I ate at an Indian Restaurant for the very first time.

  • Music: I dicovered, and really liked, Genghis Tron's Board up the House.

  • No two desktops (of mine) are not using KDE 4.x. This even includes work. Gentoo's even finally got it in the official portage tree, but I was happily using the overlay for a while.

  • One of my busiest weeks at work in a while. I am down with the sickness (Java). Wait, is that good or bad?

Remember kids, voting is for losers!
