What is this?

Syslo.gd is a blog I started as a place to put techical musings in the course of my work and play. As I started travelling extensively, this has grown to include information on travel.  Images from events and silly anticts started showing up here. In a nutshell, if I need to stretch out over more than 140 characters or post more than an image, this is the place for me to do that.

Who am I?

My name is Matt. I’m a technologist. If you are interested in the nuts and bolts of my work, my Linkedin page should have that info. In my personal time, I enjoy travel, hiking, camping, cooking and consuming media content.  I also like to laugh, as you can see in this first post.

Years ago, I worked in the video game industry. You can see some of the games I have credit for:

I also sometimes play games too. https://www.exophase.com/user/matt604/

I’ve also published a guidebook for taking a sabbatical. That can be found here.

Why syslo.gd?

Syslogd is messaging daemon used by Unix operating systems to deliver information from the machine’s software to the users and other software.
