Stuff I use day-to-day

To do what I do, I often need tools. Tools that I'll likely have opinions on, might as well list some here.


  • Custom built PC

    My pride, my joy. This is my workstation, my gaming station and the place I make my friends online. I‘ve built many PCs in my life, but this is my first custom-loop water-cooled PC.
      • AMD Ryzen 7800x3d
      • Asus ROG Crosshair X670E Hero
      • Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5 (2x16GB) @ 6000MHz
      • Gigabyte RTX 3080 Aorus Master 10G
      • And a lot more.... a LOT more.

  • LG 27GR95QE-B (27", 1440p, OLED, 240Hz)

    Having a beast of a PC deserves a beast of a monitor to ensure the top graphical fidelity, no? This monitor, alongside two nondescript side-monitors helps me enjoy the most, while also giving me the screen space to work on things.

  • Sennheiser HD800 & Schiit stack

    Okay, I‘ll cheat a little here. But they‘re all connected to each other anyway. My Sennheiser HD800 is an engineering marvel, its sound signature is perfect, and my Schiit Valhalla 2 and Schiit Bifrost are capable of driving it so well. Because aside from music, even games need to have the audible part ramped up to max fidelity.

  • Herman Miller Embody Chair

    If I’m going to slouch in the worst ergonomic position imaginable all day, I might as well do it in an expensive chair. At least it encourages me to slouch less?

Mobile workstation

  • 16” MacBook Pro, M1 Pro, 32B RAM (2021)

    In the past I was a linux user. And in a way I still am. That was until Apple‘s only good recent product, the M1 cpu. I had an air and I was immediately sold, this thing was a beast. Still don‘t like MacOS, it‘s horrible, it has a horrible window manager... but it‘s linux-y in its command line?

  • Sennheiser HD700

    Technically this is my old Sennheiser headset, but it still gets the job done very well. Whenever I‘m working somewhere, this is the headset I use to isolate myself from the world... with music.

  • Kindle Scribe

    I had a Kindle (Oasis), I had a reMarkable 2. One day I said, why not combine the two? And Amazon happened to have a solution. I love this thing for note-taking and book-reading. Now I‘m just waiting for their colour version.

Development tools

  • Jetbrains IDEs

    Expensive, but so worth. These IDEs help me bring my ideas to life. It‘s definitely a step-up from how I started my career... in notepad. These days, the refactoring capabilities and how clearly it understands my projects, aside from a huge plugin ecosystem.. this is my go-to company for my IDEs.

  • Warp

    Because the built-in terminal in MacOS sucks. This one looks prettier, has more options, has less weird behaviour and even has a little sprinkle of AI. What would you want more?

Productivity & misc

  • Google Workspace

    There was a time where I ran my own postfix/dovecot server setup, these days I‘ve just accepted that being a newcomer to email is a pain. Easier to just have a provider for it. And Google Drive lets me ignore Dropbox :)

  • Yubikey

    In my line of work, security is important. Ensuring that no one can pretend to be me, or can access the things I can access. While my Yubikey is not the sole layer of security, it is a huge step and help in making sure all that I do is secure.
