Vercel is the best way to host a Next.js site. I host this site on their free plan.
It’s really the best (and seems like the default) way to build a React site.
Check out my video about the Next.js App Router.
Bezier JS is used to generate nice curves for the Star Patterns.
The title font is a special pre-release version of a font called Free Lunch by Dan Cederholm of SimpleBits.

MacBook Pro 13”, M1, 2020
I’ve been a Mac person since way before they were cool.
I hade always been a “two monitors is better than one big one” but...I was wrong. Having all of this real estate has been great — especially for streaming / meetings.
This thing is a beast. I have a 32” 4K monitor, ethernet, camera, keyboard, Stream Deck, mic, and speakers plugged into it, all running into my macbook with one cord, and it’s charging, too! 🤯🤯🤯
I’ve been using the MX Master series for a long time - very comfortable and functional. I can barely work anymore without the thumb scroll wheel.
They don’t sell just the frame anymore, but I love the form and function of the sit/stand desk.
It’s a door.
I attached a solid-wood door to my standing desk — it’s huge and stable and awesome.
This thing is amazing. It can hold pretty much anything and has great stability and flexibility.
Lighting has always been important to me in my environment, and once I started being on camera a lot more it got important in other ways. I have 6 Hue bulbs and a couple light bars, all hooked up to my Stream Deck for easy switching.
Streaming / Podcasting / Online Events
The best no-hassle camera I’ve ever used.
The best no-hassle mic I’ve ever used.
The best no-hassle...I think you get the picture. Elgato makes great products that are very easy to use and have great connected software.
I use it every day for lighting switches and switching from headphones to speakers.
I bought this when I still was using the Yeti Blue mic, and it works great.
I use this to create areas on my monitor for streaming/sharing. This allows me to have windows on my primary monitor that aren’t being shared, and makes my life a lot easier.
Software for Workin’
Arc has completely changed how I use the web for browsing/research/getting work done. It’s really, really, really great.
I’ve used Firefox as my primary dev browser for a long, long time.
giton the command line is absurd. Free yourself and use a GUI client, you won’t regret it. Tower is the best.
