This is a list of all the things that I use to be productive day-to-day. It's inspired by this page.
I replaced my old Windows/Linux custom-built PC with this on July 22nd, 2020. Since then, it's been amazing. Though I had to give up some gaming capability, the tradeoff is that everything else is worlds better. Having 32 GB of RAM certainly helps matters.
Website: Steelseries Apex Pro
This keyboard has a beautiful aesthetic, sturdy construction, and a typefeel that I just adore. It's great for gaming and typing.
Website: Dell 32 Curved Gaming Monitor - S3220DGF
I replaced my old ultrawidescreen monitor with this. It has a more common aspect ratio, a more stable stand, and much better refresh rate. Besides that, it also "announces" itself properly, meaning that macOS actually recognizes its capabilities.
Website: DXRacer King Zero
After many years of living with a barely-intact office chair I bought for $5 at Goodwill, I bought a DXRacer King Zero gaming chair. It was a night and day experience. So comfortable! Mine is sunburst yellow and black.
This is my web browser of choice. I avoid Chromium-based browsers whenever possible. Sometimes I'll use Safari, though.
Website: Affinity Photo
My replacement for Photoshop. It's pretty good, and while my Photoshop muscle memory doesn't translate perfectly, its buy-once model combined with its feature set makes it the better alternative.
Website: Affinity Designer
Same story as Photo, but this one replaces Adobe Illustrator. The one difference is that I reach for Inkscape when I need to trace raster graphics.
Website: Affinity Publisher
Same story as Photo, but this one replaces Adobe InDesign. It's still new enough to have some issues and there are features missing, but it works well enough for laying out books and such.
Though I used Visual Studio Code, GoLand, and PHPStorm for a long time, this has come to replace all of them.
I've heard that other domain registrars are better (e.g., Hover), but I host almost all of my domains at Namecheap because it works well enough.
Website: Digital Ocean
When I need more than a static site host, I use Digital Ocean.
Netlify hosts this website, and a handful of other static sites. It's free and works really well.
