Uses

This is another /uses page, showing my current up-to-date setup.

Editor

  • Visual Studio Code, for mostly everything. Sometimes I run the "online" version that the GitHub team made for their platform.
  • Vim, whenever I want to make a simple edit and I don't want to open VSCode or any time I connect to a Linux VPS.

Editor themes

  • Cobalt 2, by Wes Bos. Dark theme without being "too dark" yet being balanced and beautiful.

Editor extensions

A small portion of it. These are my favorites.

  • Live Share, ideal for peer programming or solving problems remotely.
  • Auto Rename Tag. Whenever you rename a HTML tag, it updates the matching end tag.
  • Color Highlight. CSS colors previewed in VSCode.
  • file-size. File size at the bottom bar.
  • Git Lens (et al). A must-have for Git repositories.
  • Image preview. See the preview of an image (even SVG) at the left side of your editor, saving you time.

Workstation

Desktop PC

  • I built a custom PC running Windows 11 with a AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU.
  • I opted for air cooling due its the durability, getting a Noctua NH-D15 82.5 CFM CPU Cooler. 2 fans and 2 heatsinks, it keeps my CPU cool at ~45ºC.
  • As for graphics, I got a KFA NVIDIA RTX 2070 Super. A beast.
  • The skeleton of the PC, or part of it, MSI MPG X570 GAMING PRO CARBON WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard.
  • 1TB of space currently supplied by a Samsung 970 EVO M.2-2280 NVME.
  • Apps and proccess live on 16GB of RAM, thanks to Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16.
  • The other part of the skeleton: Antec NX600 ATX Mid Tower Case. The configurable RGB lightning serves as a desk lamp alternative.

Screens

  • Two Skyworth F27G1Q, one in portrait and the other in landscape modes. I got them from a gig and although there's little to no info about them on the Internet, they're 27'', 1440p up to 165Hz, 10-bit color support and HDR 400.

Peripherics

  • Razer Ornata Chroma and Razer Deathadder Chroma, my keyboard and mouse for years. I use the RGB mostly to distinguish the keys at night. It came with a wrist-rest too.
  • Razer Firefly. Basically, a mousepad with RGB. I have no idea why I bought this, but it works as advertised.
  • Steelseries Arctic Pro Wireless. It uses a custom DAC to transmit the audio to the headsets, although it supports 3.5mm and Bluetooth. It came with two batteries charged at the DAC station, as well as USB charging it directly, so in practice you never run out of battery. The audio quality is amazing and it has a built-in mic. Totally worth the price.

Desk table

  • Ikea MALM, 151x65cm, with a pull-out panel.

Chair

  • Newskill Kitsune. Black and blue "gaming" chair.

Gadgets

  • Amazon Alexa Echo Dot 2nd Gen. This was a special edition with a backlight LED panel for time and weather, so it served both as an assistant and an alarm clock.
