Why I Believe Everyone Should Use 2FA

I never really figured out what I wanted to do with this blog, but I have decided that it’s going to be a place for me to write about whatever I feel is important to me at the moment. If you haven’t figured it out yet, I really value privacy and security. I believe that it is a basic human right and everyone should take it seriously. I’ve already written a post about the password manager that I use so I figured I’d kind of build on to that subject with which 2FA app I used and why. Read more

Keeping Track of Tasks with Todo.txt

I am not a very organized person. I forget things all the time – just ask my wife. But I’m trying to get better at it. So I decided I was going to start keeping track of tasks. Now, I’m not one to carry around a pad of paper and a pen to write everything down so I don’t forget it. For God’s sake, it’s 2020, who carries around a pad of paper anymore? Read more

My Custom Keyboard Layout - Tada68

First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Anyway, I’m a keyboard nerd. Everyone who knows me already knows this. I mean, I have an r/MechanicalKeyboards sticker on my car! I’ve built around 8 or 9 keyboards on my own. It’s a hobby I never really saw myself getting into, but when I did, I got into it hard. I currently have 12 keyboards and countless key cap sets. One of the things that really drew me to building custom keyboards was the ability to program custom layouts using the QMK Frimware. Read more

My Password Manager - gopass Pt. II

Okay. So in my last post I completely neglected to talk about the features of gopass and what really made me choose it. I can’t believe I just forgot to talk about what the post was supposed to be about. Derp. So I’m going to make that up with this post. Why I use gopass In the last post I really only talked about the fact that I didn’t like some company potentially having access to my data. Read more

My Password Manager - gopass

In our digital lives we create a lot of accounts – and with these accounts come a lot of passwords. If you are like me, then you want to keep these accounts safe. I used to be the kind of person that used one password for every single account. I didn’t know any better. I didn’t know how terrible of a place the internet could be. When I was younger I didn’t really have anything on the internet that was of value to anyone else. Read more

My Laptop: The ThinkPad W520

I spent the better part of 4 years using MacBooks as my daily laptop. Starting in 2009 with a white MacBook that I was given by my parents as a graduation gift. I thought I was the coolest kid in the world. I loved that thing. I customized the heck out of it, and I used it all the time. I was a photographer and photographers used MacBooks. Fast forward a few years to 2012 and I upgraded to a late 2011 MacBook Pro. Read more

Keyboard - Tada68

So I’ve tried many mechanical keyboards in my few short years in the hobby. I’ve tried fullsized, tenkeyless, 65%, 60%, and even 40% and I must say, 65% – for me at least – is the sweet spot. It saves a ton of space on my desk, while also having many of the keys I use the most right on the main layer. Size: 65% Case: High Profile Aluminum, KBDfans Switches: 65g Zealios, ZealPC Keycaps: Massdrop x MiTo GMK Laser, GMK

Dvorak

So probably about 4 years ago now I started to really get into mechanical keyboards. And I don’t mean that I bought one and that was that. Like, within a year I’m pretty sure I already owned at least 2 keyboards and a handful of keycaps. That led me to look into other keyboard related things like alternate layouts. Now I had heard of Dvorak from a friend back in high school. Read more
