Stuff I Use

This is about the hardware and software I use. If you’re one of the nerds who actually care about this, you’re part of the problem. I had a much more detailed page when I was still trying to impress other nerds.


I use WordPress to run this website. It’s hosted by Dreamhost. I could use a static site generator, or write my own HTML, or even generate pages and feeds with shellscripts and a makefile, but I just can’t be bothered.

If you think it matters how you get your bullshit on the internet, you might want to take a moment ask yourself what you’re trying to prove and who you’re trying to impress.


My computers are all secondhand and refurbished machines. With the exception of my 2003 iMac, they all run OpenBSD. The iMac has the latest version of OSX Tiger and is basically a fancy X terminal.

My primary music player is a Mibao M500. It works as a USB Mass Storage device, supports both MP3 and Ogg Vorbis, doesn’t connect to the internet, and only cost me $40.

My phone is a Moto G5+ with a cracked screen that I can’t be bothered to replace. The only reason I still have it is that the camera’s OK and I need multi-factor authentication apps for my day job.


I swing both ways: I can use both vi and emacs. Hell, sometimes I get really kinky and use ed.
