Here is a list of hardware, software, and settings I use routinely. All these things allow me to get better work done, make my life easier in general ... or are just fun to tinker with.

💻 Hardware

  • MacBook Pro
  • iPhone
  • Rapberry Pi 4B -- latest gen can be a very capable NAS (I have it acting as a network Time Machine, and Pi-Hole)
  • ASRock A300 mini-pc dual-booting Windows 11 and Ubuntu. I love small form factor PC building! This one is very small form factor I'd say, and serves as a general Plex server and remote drive.
  • Eero 6 Pro wifi mesh network. I previously had a more fiddly wifi system with more config options, but grew a little tired of all the management it required.

🎒 Other software / services I use all the time

  • Reeder -- RSS reader
  • 1Password -- for 2FA and generated passwords, plus tracking membership numbers and software licenses
  • Parallels -- it can run the Mac's bootcamped Windows partition from within macOS when I don't want to reboot
  • Pixelmator -- image & photo editing
  • VNC
  • Pocket Casts -- the best cross-platform podcast manager
  • Audible
  • Spotify
  • Infuse -- a video player client for Plex, iTunes, any other network protocol with an amazing UI and great filetype compatibility
