My computer hardware
My current computer setup is a semi-temporary and simple setup with limited physical space. I currently have a small (and cheap) desk from IKEA. And that’s pretty much it.
Me and my partner are currently living in a apartment with limited space for a proper desk. We’re currently looking for a house with a proper office space (with amongst other things).
This is my (currently 10 year old) workstation computer that I’m running Gentoo Linux on. It’s named after my best friend Atlas

This is my secondary computer that runs Alpine Linux with WeeChat and bitlbee (for XMPP) in a terminal multiplexer. It’s named after one of my other best friends, which happen to be the younger brother of Atlas.
I use an external SSD for
$HOME to keep the read and writes to the SD-card at a minimum. Alpine Linux runs from the memory (by default on their ARM builds), so the SD-card doesn’t see any noticeable wear and tear.
