Sold My Bonobo

Last fall, I did something I didn’t think I would do anytime soon…. I sold my main workstation computer. Specifically, my System76 Bonobo Extreme laptop. Several events over the last year have led me to the realization that my actual computing needs are drastically different than what they were when I purchased the Bonobo in early 2015. This post will highlight some of those realizations, and why I ultimately decided to sell my Bonobo laptop.


New Happy Hacking Keyboard Pro 2

After years of using a Happy Hacking Keyboard Lite, I have finally decided to splurge on a Happy Hacking Professional 2 keyboard. And I love it.

If I remember correctly, I ended that post listing off a few tasks that I wanted to complete before switching the site (oops). Well… they’re complete now. Here’s how.

Specifically, I have been experimenting with Hugo. This post will detail why I am switching, what I have ported over thus far, and what still needs to be completed before generating the official site with hugo.


Simple Reverse SSH Tunnels

Last week, I was on vacation with my family. While I didn’t work a ton on personal projects, I was at least able to spend some time on my TunelBeacon project again. I will write a dedicated post about that project down the road when I am further along. Basically, it will be a simple GUI to create reverse ssh tunnels, that family and friends can startup in order grant me temporary access to their computer when they need support.
