My “drugs” of choice

So, I’ve made this blog. That’s nice, but what do you know about me? Why am I writing about debian, tomcat and minecraft?

I though I’ll give you, dear reader, a little information about myself, and about the software that I use on a daily basis (and I think that speaks volumes about me). So…

I use Debian Testing for my personal laptop, a Lenovo Z500. I have dual boot with Windows 8.1, mostly for gaming, and mostly unused, since the games I’m playing lately are available on Linux (to be honest, I mostly play minecraft :-P). I choose Gnome-Shell as desktop environment, and Bumblebee for the dual graphics cards support.

For web browsing, I use mostly Iceweasel, with a couple of add-ons, like firebug and AdBlockPlus. I also have Chromium, so I can test a different web browser whenever I’m doing web development. I have Calibre to manage the ebooks in my Kindle, Gedit for text editing, and Latexila and LibreOffice to edit complex documents (Although, If you are planning on sending me any document, please read this first!). I use Inkscape and Gimp for image editing, and Openshot for video editing, and I watch those videos (and many more!) in vlc.

At my workplace, I also have Debian, but with KDE. In that PC, I use Eclipse and maven for java development, Pycharm and Kate for python, Kile for latex, and Vim for pretty much every other thing. I also use git and github for version control. Finally, I use Apache, Apache Tomcat, MariaDB, and some of its modules (like mod_wsgi) for the deployment of most of our work, on a couple of Ubuntu virtual servers.

This blog is hosted on a VPS running CentOS 7, using nginx, Apache, php and MariaDB, as well as WordPress. My minecraft server is hosted in a different VPS with Debian stable.

Finally, I have a fairphone running android (I considered CyanogenMod, but I’ve put that on hold).

And I think that sums it up pretty well. What do you think? 😉

PD: Also, coffee. Lots of the stuff.
