Got an app idea or need some coding done? I can help! Learn more about how you & I can work together.

This page reflects a listing of the tools I use for my every day activity. This ranges from my cameras to terminal shell of choice. Good chance that you've learned here out of curiousity or because I pointed you to it. Quite frankly, this page serves as a point of reference for me whenever I have to discuss what I use on my day-to-day with people.

My Primary Laptop

My laptop of choice is the Dell XPS 14 with 500 GB of disk space, 32 GB SSD and a Intel i7-3537U core. With 8 GB SDDRAM3 @ 1.6 GHz, a moderately decent set of cores — gets the job done. Bluetooth is in there as well and it has a backlit keyboard which really helps at night. A nugget of gold about this laptop? Under the bottom left corner of the keyboard, a button lights up to five LEDs, letting you know how much power is left.

My Cameras

Most of the shots I have taken come from my nifty Nikon L830 since it’s mostly automatic when it comes to handling. I really just tweak ISO, white balance and focus with this camera. However, the Nikon D3200 handles a lot better, takes way better shots but requires me to fiddle with it a bit more. This might be me handling it incorrectly; we’ll find out.

My Mouse

Nothing too fantastic here. I got this because it was a bit more friendly to left-handed mouse users (one of the few!) thus making it worthwhile. It doubles as my road mouse as well.

Operating System

I’m one of those Linux purists you might have heard of. I use Android on my phone and run Linux on my laptop machine. People might call me wild, I enjoy it. I run KDE Plasma 5 on my desktop machine with the latest kernel additions (always stay up-to-date).


I try to use as much KDE tools as possible. That means me making use of the whole Akondai suite and what not. Granted, the one application I probably use the most is Konsole. After that, neovim is a tight contender.
