Daily Drivers

I have two primary computers: a laptop and a desktop. I also have a VPS running Linode which hosts my personal infrastructure.

I run Arch Linux on my desktop and NixOS on my laptop and main infrastructure server. I plan to move all of my computers over to NixOS eventually.

I use the i3 window manager, i3status-rust, ZSH, NeoVim, and mutt among other things. You can find my full dotfiles and miscellaneous scripts on sourcehut.

Here's a list of my daily driver machines. I name them after planets in the Star Wars universe.
