In Real Life (IRL) Stack
Devices, apps, and services I use day-to-day.
- Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Titanium Yoga - Daily driver
- Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3i - Secondary device
- Nokia 2780 Flip - Daily driver
- Moto G Play 2023 - Secondary device
- SOC Bugout Bag - Main pack - Great for one-bag travels. You can fit a week's worth of clothing and electronics. MOLLE straps let you expand the pack with your own accessories.
- Adidas Rectangle Crossbody - EDC pack

Photography & Video

- Garmin Drive 52 - Car GPS
- Onyx Boox Nova Air 2 - E-Reader / Digital Notepad
- AntennaPod - Podcasts on Android
- RadioDroid - Internet radio
- VLC - Listen to internet radio and podcasts on desktop.

- Spotify - Exclusively for music. It would probably be easier to use it for both music and podcasts but for some odd reason, I like managing music & podcasts separately.
Audio & Video Calling
Feed Reader & News
- NewsBlur - If it has an RSS feed, it's here. Blogs, news sites, YouTube channels, podcasts, etc. I use NewsBlur as the one place to manage my RSS feeds. NewsBlur also provides you with an e-mail address so you can subscribe to e-mail newsletters.
- Elfeed - Emacs feed reader. I use elfeed to read a slimmed down version of all the feeds I follow on NewsBlur. The feeds I follow on here are mainly the ones listed in my blogroll and podroll.
Maps & Navigation
- Here Maps - Secondary map app. OpenStreetMap reverse geo-coding capabilities leave something to be desired, so Here Maps is handy then.
- Mastodon - Fediverse microblogging.
- GitHub - Code hosting
- GitHub Actions - Build & workflow automation
- Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code - IDE / Text editor for blogging and software development
- Ionide - Visual Studio Code F# extension
- Docker - Devcontainers and deployment
- Insomina - HTTP client
- Netron - Machine learning model visualization
