+# What I Use
+This page is for those who are curious about the programs and equipment I use
+to get work done. It is inspired by:
+=> https://uses.tech/ uses.tech
+* **CPU:** Ryzen 5 1600 w/ Stock Cooler

+ - **Windows Games:** Samsung 860 Evo 250GB SATA SSD
+* **Monitors:** 2x ASUS VP239H-P 23" 1080 IPS
+You can see the original build that I did, along with the cost for each item in
+Canadian dollars at the time that it was purchased, by clicking this link to [a
+PCPartPicker build list](https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/vpLJ7P). RAM prices at
+the time (November, 2017) were absolutely horrendous.
+I own a Thinkpad T440s (I don't actually mind the trackpad) which I purchased
+second-hand off of eBay for a grand total of $215 USD after shipping/etc with
+the following specifications:
+* **CPU:** Intel i5-4300U
+* **RAM:** 4GB Soldered + 4GB Samsung DDR3L SO-DIMM
+* **GPU:** Intel Integrated Graphics
+* **Storage:** Crucial 250GB SATA SSD
+* **Screen:** 1080p IPS
+I also [bought a T420s](/blog/my-new-t420s) which tends to get a bit more use
+around the home:
+* **CPU:** Intel i5-2520M
+* **RAM:** 2x4GB DDR3 SO-DIMM
+* **GPU:** Intel Integrated Graphics
+ * Crucial 128GB SATA SSD
+ * Kingston 120GB SATA SSD

+* Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite - Used for reading PDFs, kept entirely offline.
+ - 1GB RAM
+ - 8GB Storage
+ - With protective folding case
+Purchased in 2015 and still going strong almost 5 years later. I haven't even
+had to swap the battery yet.

+## Server Equipment
+I try to self-host most of my services and I aim for low-cost, power-efficient,
+and silent equipment. Below is a list of the equipment which I currently use:
+### OPNSense Router
+I got this computer as a reward for helping a friend build a PC. I added 2 more
+gigabit NICs with a PCIe card for a total of three (one WAN, one LAN, one
+Wi-Fi). It has more horsepower than a router typically needs, but it also does
+more than a typical router. For example, it runs intrusion detection software
+which scans every packet. It also typically only draws 15-20W and stays very
+quiet. Here are the specifications:
+* HP SFF Desktop PC w/ Proprietary Motherboard/Case/PSU
+ - **CPU:** Intel Core i3-3220 CPU @ 3.30GHz (4C/4T)
+ - **RAM:** 2x2GB DDR3
+ - **Storage:** 160GB Fujitsu 2.5" SATA-II HDD
+### Proxmox Server
+This is one of my old laptops. I've owned it for at least 7 years if not longer
+and I'm pretty sure it was my second laptop ever.
+* Lenovo V570 Laptop (missing display)
+ - **CPU:** i5-2450M @ 2.50GHz (2C/4T)
+ - **RAM:** 12GB DDR3 SO-DIMM
+ - **Storage:** Seagate Momentus 500GB 5400RPM
+ - **Backup Storage:** Seagate Expansion 8TB External HDD
+### Git Server
+Purchased for $20 including a case from a local seller.
+* PineA64+ (Original, not LTS)
+ - **CPU:** Allwinner A64
+ - **RAM:** 2GB DDR3
+ - **Storage:** 32GB SanDisk Ultra SD Card
+These are the names I give my computers/VMs. They are chosen from elements of
+the Greek Underworld mythology.

+I try to stay as far away from proprietary applications as I possibly can. I
+typically use terminal-based applications over GUI ones as I find that they feel
+more efficient once I've learned how to use them. Many also support vim-like
+keybindings which are burned into my muscle memory now.
+View [my dotfiles](https://git.sr.ht/~jbauer/dotfiles)
+### Operating System(s)
+My operating system of choice is [Debian GNU/Linux](https://www.debian.org). I
+run the stable variant (which is Debian 10 Buster at the time of writing) on all
+of my machines as I love how stable and dependable it is. I also like the fact
+that I can do a minimal install with no GUI environment and build my system up
+from that (much like Arch).
+Although I really like Debian, I have been experimenting with other
+distributions and operating systems. Gentoo has piqued my interest and I've
+enjoyed using FreeBSD and OpenBSD (though I don't think I'll be using BSDs on
+the desktop for now).
+I am not evangelistic about running specific Linux distributions and prefer to
+encourage others to use whichever distribution they are most comfortable with.
+### Desktop Environment/Window Manager
+I use a tiling window manager and have essentially built my own desktop
+environment from the ground up by gluing together different components à la the
+Unix philosophy. I don't use a display manager; the environment is started with
+* [dwm](https://dwm.suckless.org) as my tiling window manager,
+* [slstatus](https://tools.suckless.org/slstatus) as my status bar,
+* [dmenu](https://tools.suckless.org/dmenu) as my application launcher,
+* [dunst](https://dunst-project.org/) as my notification daemon,
+* [feh](https://feh.finalrewind.org/) to set my desktop background,
+* and [betterlockscreen](https://github.com/pavanjadhaw/betterlockscreen) as my
+ lock screen.
+I use the [iceberg](https://cocopon.github.io/iceberg.vim/) colourscheme and try
+to make the rest of my desktop environment follow that colourscheme.
+I am partial to the [DejaVu](https://dejavu-fonts.github.io/) font family. I
+use them pretty much everywhere.
+I use [st](https://st.suckless.org/) (aka Simple Terminal). I actually really
+like the model of patching a minimal piece of software with the features that I
+need and I enjoy the simplicity, speed, and light feeling of it.
+I used to use [urxvt](http://software.schmorp.de/pkg/rxvt-unicode.html) but it
+didn't handle unicode that well and lacked truecolour support so [I switched to
+### File Manager
+I don't use one. I find the tools available on the command line (`mv`, `rm`,
+etc) allow me to accomplish what I need to do faster than a dedicated file
+### Text Editor/IDE
+I use [Neovim](https://neovim.io/). I am very comfortable with the keybindings
+and modal nature of vim and vim-like editors. I use a select few plugins and a
+colour scheme but try to keep things as minimal as possible.
+### Web Browser
+[Firefox](https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/). I tried using some other
+browsers such as qutebrowser but always [kept coming back to
+Firefox](/blog/qutebrowser-to-firefox) thanks to its focus on privacy, excellent
+ad-blocking support, and general usability. I also use
+[lynx](https://lynx.invisible-island.net/) for browsing on the command line.
+I use Firefox with the following addons:
+* uBlock Origin
+* Privacy Badger
+* HTTPS Everywhere
+* Vim Vixen
+* Video Speed Controller
+### Mail Client
+I use [aerc](https://aerc-mail.org/). It's light, fast, and lets me efficiently
+manage my mail. When I need to go offline, I synchronize my mail with
+### IRC Client
+I use [weechat](https://weechat.org/) as my client. It's customizable, powerful,
+and yet simple with sane defaults.
+### Instant Messaging
+I use [Riot](https://about.riot.im/) for [Matrix](https://matrix.org/)-based
+communication and [Signal](https://www.signal.org/) with people for whom Matrix
+would be a bit too complicated.
+### Password Manager
+I use [KeepassXC](https://keepassxc.org/). I chose it for being really simple to
+manage compared to something like BitWarden and because I really like the user
+### Music Player
+I now use [cmus](https://cmus.github.io/) for its simplicity and ease-of-use. It
+does everything I need from a music player.
+### Video Player
+[mpv](https://mpv.io/) is my video player of choice. It's light, simple, and
+versatile. It also integrates with youtube-dl so I can watch Youtube videos or
+Twitch streams without opening my web browser.
+### RSS Feed Reader
+[Newsboat](https://newsboat.org/) because it's simple, easy, terminal-based, and
+I can program a bunch of macros to open up whichever feed in whichever
+application I want (e.g. open a Youtube feed in MPV).
+### Document Creation
+I will typically write documents in either markdown or LaTeX. For instances
+where I need to interact with `.docx` files and whatnot, I use
+I prefer using [sent](https://tools.suckless.org/sent/) because I like the style
+of presentation that the tool produces. If I ever need anything more complex I
+opt for [Beamer](https://ctan.org/pkg/beamer).
+### Day Planning/Organization/Notes
+I use pen and paper for this. For whatever reason, I find it cumbersome to use
+electronic organizers/calendars for keeping track of my life and I much prefer
+having something physical to store this information. If you're curious, I use a
+Leuchtturm1917 A5 Dot Grid Notebook and a Burgundy/Gold Parker 51 with Waterman
+Inspired Blue ink.
+### Image Viewing
+[sxiv](https://github.com/muennich/sxiv) since it handles all the image types I
+need it to and has nice keybindings.
+### PDF Viewer
+[Zathura](https://pwmt.org/projects/zathura/) for its excellent keybindings,
+nearly instant launching compared to something like Evince, and for being a very
+nice minimalist piece of software. Chosen over MuPDF because Zathura has an
