/Uses

I got this idea from uses.tech, and seeing a bunch of folks typing up what they're using so I figured I'd rattle off my setup!

Headphones

I've got a whole review for the ridiculous number of headphones I've got over here: Headphones Review Page

Phone

  • iPhone 13

Servers

  • Raspberry Pi 4. Several of them. I'm running a Gitlab instance on one, a Gitlab runner on another, and Docker hosting a bunch of various things on them.
  • Kubernetes Cluster on Civo

Browser

  • Wavebox - It's a chromium based browser which has a neat take on organizing tabs, essentially.
  • Firefox

Travel Gear

Don't you miss traveling? I miss traveling, but it's way more important to stay local and wear a mask!

  • Peak Design 45L
  • Peak Design Travel Cubes
  • Toothpaste Tablets
  • Nintendo Switch Lite. Seriously, this is the best travel console. I also have a full sized switch which is also great, but I don't pack a full suitcase so every inch of space counts. Sadly, my Switch Lite's a bit borked at the moment. It doesn't understand that it has a charge and the battery "depletes" rapidly.
  • BaseUS 100 Watt Charger - it's actually compact, charges the macbook and ipad pro at the same time, and it's about the only aftermarket charger that can fully power the Blade Stealth.
