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, software and hardware dweeb from Scotland. I currently work as a software engineer at Fanduel, and in my spare time I sometimes write software. I run a Mastodon instance for queer folk and friends, I like screwing around with Docker Swarm, and I’m a huge fan of Grafana, for which I’ve developed custom systems to collect in-depth metrics. 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 simple hybrid site generator system which powered this site for some time.
