colourful words and phrases

techy tangents and general life chatter from a tired sysadmin.


Hi! I'm Matthew Connelly, best known as Maff.

I'm a Systems Administrator, hobbyist photographer and scripting fanatic from Scotland. I currently manage infrastructure at Tradeprint and work on (mostly Perl) projects in my spare time. My current "constantly improving" project is my home network, which I've added multiple access points to, and have set up external monitoring for my OpenWRT-based hardware through Munin, for which I've developed the openwrt-munin-node project. As well as this, I've worked on other projects including a daemon for monitoring directories and performing actions on files added to them, and a basic blogging system which powers this site.
