Technology I Use

Technology I Use

A FAQ a lot of tech people get asked is “what tech do you use?” and this page should answer those questions. This is by no means any sort of comprehensive list, either. Also, I am a firm believer in using stuff until it breaks. I’m not a gamer either so that’s why you’ll see an interesting selection of hardware. A lot of what I do is done on remote computers which also just means I need an internet connection.
