Things That I Use

This page is inspired in the movement and its main goal is to share with you what things I use on my daily life, from hardware to software. It might not be accurate at all times, but I try to update it every now and then to make sure it is up to date.

πŸ’Ό Coworking Space

Desk at Microlab Eindhoven
Desk at Microlab Eindhoven

I rent a desk at Microlab Eindhoven, where I go on my daily basis to work. Being in a coworking space allows me to separate work from personal things. Besides, since my work is fully remote, going to a coworking place is also a way of interacting with others in-person.

Desk at Home
Desk at Home

At home I also have a desk with some things. This desk is used by my partner or I when we have to work from home, or if we want to do computer else on our laptops but we prefer to use a desk for it. I’m personally a desk person, and I much rather prefer having a desk than just using the laptop as-is.

πŸ“· Photography

On the photography department, I currently own a Fuji X-T4. The pictures that come out of it are fantastic. However, it is a bit of a mess to edit Fuji RAWs due to the way they’re encoded. I’m using Capture One for that. Maybe I’ll write about it one day.

goshort - I have not used it that much, but it's a nice to have. I'm looking forward to having more use cases for it though.

🌐 Domains

This is a list of the domains I currently own, with an explanation for each. These domains are registered in different registrars, namely Namecheap, PTServidor, and Porkbun. I used to have a page dedicated just for this, but I don’t think that’s worth it. But it’s still fun to share!

This is the domain you are visiting right now and I use it as my main domain. hacdias is also my default handle in the Internet, so you can likely find me with that name.
This was my first domain, bought by my father as a gift when I was 14 years old. Nowadays, I redirect it to my main domain. I like to keep it, not just because of emotional attachment, but also because it's my first and last name combined.
This one I bought after speaking to Sebastiaan about it. It's a short domain for a URL shortener. It's short and Portuguese πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Ή.
This was the domain I used to use for my URL shortener. Right now, it serves the same application as I like to keep it as it combines my handle with .sh. Maybe I could use it for code, or some other programming-related thing.
This is the domain of the UNIX server that hosts my website, as well as some other small services for friends and myself. It is an homage to the Portuguese custard tart, Pastel de Nata, and cafΓ©s.
