- Tower - I've built a custom rig for development and some light gaming, but I'll save the details
- Lenovo ThinkPad T580 - My trusty workbook sporting an i7 and running Pop!_OS 20.04
- Dell Poweredge T110 II - A garage sale pickup a couple years back that replaced my R710 as a slightly more practical spare-bedroom-server-lab machine
- Quefrency Rev. 2 - Split 65% keyboard (mine is the version with the macro pad) with an upper-left rotary, Cherry MX Clears, and Dolch-ish duotone grey keycaps
- Logitech Master MX 2S - I love a good smooth scroll, and three Bluetooth devices means I can have my tower, personal laptop, and work laptop all at a touch
- Sennheiser HD 4.50 - A decent set of noise cancelling headphones that I use daily, both wired and wireless
- Autonomous ErgoChair 2 - Bought on the recommendation of a friend, I've been enjoying this chair so far!
- USB Condenser Microphone - Something to offer a little more quality and significantly more flexibility than my headphone mic, and it comes with a stand
- No-Name Laptop Dock - An oddly unmarked USB-C dock to switch monitors and ethernet between laptops. USB accessories are handled through the switch below and then the dock so that switching laptops is a one-plug exercise.
- USB Switch - Needed a cheap, fast way to swap accessories between the laptop dock and the tower.
NOTE: Free and Open-Source Software items are strongly marked 💪
- Development Tooling
- VS Code - Microsoft has won the editor wars, in my opinion; feature rich and extensible.
- Fira Code - I usually go for simple fonts, but I've come to really appreciate a good set of ligatures. I switched from Ubuntu Mono.
- Noctis - A great theme pack by Liviu Schera; I personally use Minimus (and I hear the guy that made that one is pretty cool, too)
- GitLab - As a lover of FOSS, effective remote work, and tooling that makes easy work of all the things that come along with building software, GitLab is a favorite of mine as a product and a company
- PowerToys - The assignable regions for window snapping is a livable replacement for the tiling I've become accustomed on Linux when I'm developing on my Windows machine
- Windows Terminal - As a regular WSL user who's used to having tabs, Windows Terminal has been a blessing. I use Posh Git with a lightly customized theme when I'm in PowerShell, as well.
- Netlify - Free site hosting? Yes please. Also includes DNS management, easy SSL setup, and more. In fact, this site is hosted there right now!
- acme.sh - Easy and effective cert management (and it now integrates with Netlify DNS, among many other providers)
- Proxmox VE 6.2 - Virtualization platform of choice for all my self-hosting projects
- Docker - Natural choice for easy handling of some of my self-hosted apps, whether maintainers provide an image or I craft my own
- Ansible - For box setup scripts, managing my internal DNS server/sinkhole, and generally keeping infra config in line with my "Everything As Code" goals
- Notion - Notion comes in handy for storing all kinds of info from quick notes and ideas, to spreadsheets and kanban boards. I use the web and Android apps to manage info on personal projects.
- Todoist - Constantly using the Todoist mobile app for my daily checklists. I enjoy the interface and the GTD mindset.
