Stuff I use

Computer

My desktop computer is about 5 years old now, but it’s more than enough to play most of the games I want, as well as VR, so I’m quite happy with it.

  • CPU: Ryzen 5 1600
  • GPU: GTX 1080
  • RAM: 16GB 3000MHz
  • Storage: 250GB NVMe, 500GB HDD, 2TB HDD
  • Case: Fractal Design Define C (No window 🙁)
  • OS: Windows 10 Pro
  • Display: MSI MAG27C 1080p 144Hz

For my input devices, I have a MX Master 2S as well as a custom keyboard I made using the very nice Portico kit by TKC, with some Kiwi switches and some cheap pudding keycaps on Amazon. It feels pretty great for the money—at least in my opinion—and it looks pretty nice too!

Laptop

I recently treated myself with a 2020 M1 Macbook Air with the following specs:

  • CPU: M1 8-core
  • GPU: 7-core
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • OS: Mac OS (surprising, right?)

Software

On the computer side, I use this:

On the mobile side, this:

  • Safari
  • Nextcloud
  • Craft
  • Signal
  • Discord
  • Messenger
  • Spotify
  • YouTube
  • Spark (amazing email app)
  • Apollo (best Reddit app)
  • Shakepay
  • 1Password

Other hardware

I used to be an Android guy, but I recently—well, 2 years ago—switched to iPhone. I’m currently using the iPhone 12 and it feels great, the screen is amazing and the camera system is 👌. That is not to say I don’t like Android, I just really like iPhone right now. Plus, I have a Macbook and an Apple Watch S5, and the integrations are great!

At some point I’d love to have a Synology NAS, to stop using my VPS as a cloud and have everything locally instead.

This website

This website is powered by WordPress and hosted on a VPS over at OVH.

The theme is custom-made, but was technically based on underscores at first. Though most of its code is gone or replaced by my own, especially the styles. There’s a bit more info on analytics over on my privacy page.

If you’re looking for the fonts, I’m using Georgia for headings and Atkinson Hyperlegible as the body font. It’s super accessible, and looks pretty great too!

Also, big credit to Kev Quirk and Andy Bell’s Piccalilli for the inspiration for my website.

Other web services

Aside from OVH for my hosting, here are some services I use:

  • Google Domains
  • Cloudflare, for DNS
  • Spotify
  • Twitter (mostly lurking)
  • SendGrid, for their SMTP relay
