I frequently get asked what hardware/software/technology I prefer for certain pursuits. I decided it was easier to list it all in one place and point people to that, rather than keep answering the question in different ways.

To that end, what follows is my “toolbox”. All of the information technology hardware and software that I use for the various things I do. Now the real challenge comes: keeping it up to date!

If you have questions, or suggestions, please add them to comments!
