About Me
  1. My name is Matt Mooney
  2. My email address is
  3. My wiki username is mfm
  4. My IRC nickname is _mfm_
  5. My wiki page is
  6. My primary language is English
  7. Location, and what hours tend to work: California, USA. 13:00-3:00 GMT-7
  8. I am a developer coding mainly in c/c++, of course I can do scripting too. I tend to spend my time studying operating systems, namely, the Linux Kernel. I have a few trivial patches in the kernel already, with a couple more in Andrew Morton's tree awaiting the merge window. Recently I made significant documentation changes to one of the kbuild docs, which should also be in the next merge. I also have attempted to fix a few bugs in other projects that I have experienced; however, after downloading the repository and checking the log, I have so far been a few days or weeks too late.

I am an open source enthusiast and would love to contribute to more projects. Fedora is one of the distributions I use, and is currently the distribution I install on all of my non-technical friends systems to get them to switch to open source.
