Current Hardware

I’ve been building PC’s since high school, even though back then they were made up of whatever I could find in bargain bins or second hand. Computers are the tools I use to earn a living, support my family and pay for my hobbies, two of which also involve computers. This page lists what my current setups are.

Ex office workstation, this was a 2018 “workstation” upgrade for my previous PC, which I’d custom-built in 2010.

Now that I have two workstations, this is mostly used for remote work, meetings, conferences or if I travel.
