My Gear

Here is a brief overview of the gear and programs I am currently using for this website or my personal computing gear.

Server Setup

I have a Debian server setup using a Digital Ocean (referral link) droplet and load balancer which runs the open-source NGINX web server. That is what is running this website. I also secure it with a certificate from Let's Encrypt.


I'm using the open-source FTP software FileZilla to upload my files to this server using my SSH keys for authentication.

For editing I use either Mousepad, Ghostwriter or LibreOffice.

Desktop PC

Last weekend (2019 Aug 24) I was able to complete my new PC build which has been on hold almost all month as I had some motherboard issues and waiting on parts to arrive. Real quick, it has a Ryzen 7 3800X CPU, 32 GB of RAM, a new 1 TB PCIe 4.0 M2.NVMe SSD and all Noctua fans. Read more about it here

Gaming PC

I have an Alienware X51 R3 with Windows 10 which is strictly for gaming when I feel like playing. I made a few upgrades to it recently which you can read about it here.
