Tech I Use

I’ve often been asked about the tech I use on a regular basis. Here’s a list, in terms of how heavily I use them.


This one is my desktop. Yes, it’s got a cheesy nickname. I don’t have a very good imagination when it comes to naming things. Sorry. I game, do work and content production on this desktop.

Mobile communication. Also a backup computer in case my desktop ever fails.

Manufacturer: Dell

Raspberry Pi 4 with 8GB RAM, in a custom CaseLabs wooden case and logo design of my own. This one just hosts a small number of services.


Raspberry Pi Zero 1.3v, the one with the wifi. This one has an ethernet adapter that’s connected to this Pi and exclusively runs PiHole, an ad-blocking platform that I use to reduce the chances of malware and other malicious scripts from gaining a foothold on my network.


Dell PowerEdge R420 Server

4x 1TB Western Digital NAS Drives

There are other devices I use also, but they’re not listed here because they’re either down or not ready for use yet, such as my little storage server and my server that I use for my homelab.
