I keep getting asked how my setup works, how I use tmux and nvim over ssh… all that good stuff. …
Sometimes people ask me what my setup looks like for remote work. I decided to try to keep a list of the hardware and software I’m using.
People call usually call such pages “my /uses page”.
So, here’s mine. Hope you’ll find this useful, somehow.

k3sand random stuff;

Sound & Video
I’m a nerd and I like racks. So, I built my own. 100% over engineering for my home network, but I always wanted to work on one, and now I have.
It has some Unify gear, UPS, plus the aforementioned NAS and Raspberry Pies.
Here are some of the apps I use everyday and/or enjoy using:
- Neovim: Editor.
- Ghostty (beta): Terminal emulator.
- Tmux: Terminal multiplexer.
- Zoxide: z/autojump.
- Fish: Shell.
- Nix and home-manager: Configuration management of (eventually) all my computers
- Berkeley Mono: Font.
- Hammerspoon: To script macOS with Lua.
- Dash: (offline) Documentation.
I’m a simple man, and no particular email, notes, or calendar app seems worth the trouble/money for me, so I use macOS/iOS default ones.
