I use a cheap desk, a pretty good chair, and a budget monitor.
It's an okay desk. It's deep enough and 55" is wide enough for my needs.
It's a little bit floppy and the lack of articulation in the center post is a little annoying, but it's held up well.
I live a double laptop life, this makes that clean.
Huge quality of life improvement when I want to work in a Linux environment.
It's a headset. It's comfy. The sound quality is fine.
It's a comfy chair for big folks. I am a big folk.
I split my time between two laptops.
It's still a great laptop and it doesn't suffer from any of the weird design decisions of later models.
Ten years on this laptop is still an absolute beast.
Razor Deathadder V2 - Current
Recently switched to this after my MX Master thumb button started acting up and loosening/tightening the daughter board wasn't cutting it anymore.
Great productivity mouse, I love the ergonomics and programmability.
I actually love the form factor and really prefer it style to the M570, unfortunately wireless alternatives are way more expensive than I'm willing to drop on a temporary mouse.
I use this if I end up having wrist pain and I don't want to deal with wires.
It's really expensive for what it is, but I really like it. Sorry, I'm a Topre apologist.
MX Green was maybe not the best decision. It's loud as hell and is a repetative strain issue waiting to happen. Kinda still like it though.
I break this out if I'm having pains where I shouldn't have pains. It's okay, someday I'd like something similar with mechanical switches.
I have a heirarchy of editor choices.
My go to is Vim (gvim if I'm on windows).
I recently started testing this out when I'm writing F# code, I don't hate it.
Visual Studio Code (with a Vim plugin)
If I need something that I don't have/would be a pain to setup in Vim, I'll switch to VSCode.
Example: TypeScript, C#, basically anything with an abundance of user defined static types.
Visual Studio 20XX (with a Vim plugin)
I use this for the day job. It's more or less a necessity.
Personally, still the gold standard of MacOS terminal emulators.
I finally gave up Bash. I held out as long as I could.
The more annoying it is to update my terminal config the less likely I am to do it. Theoretically, this means getting more things done.
I held out as long as I could. It's just convenient.
Windows Terminal - Current
This is actually really useful for managing multiple command line contexts. Personally, I prefer it over other solutions like cmder.
I mostly use this when I do anything in the CLI on Windows.
Ubuntu flavor. I will typically use this when I need to do something in Node.
Mostly abandoned now that I have Windows Terminal.
Linux/*NIX and Window Managers
I'm trying to be better about distro hopping
Debian - Current
It's fine. I switched to it for better .NET Core support out of the box.
Ubuntu for Arch. I kind of miss the AUR and the rolling releases. May go back to it someday.
I haven't used it in a long time, but I'm tempted to go back to it.
It's the easiest tiling manager to get started with. Maybe someday I'll switch to XMonad, but why?
Arctic White from 2006, made in Mexico. I love this guitar. Truly a workhorse.
It has seen better days it was beat up when I traded a 2004 Silvertone SG Clone for it and I've only beat it up more.
Squire Affinity PJ Bass
Most recent purchase. It certainly is a bass guitar. Honestly, I really like it for what it is.
