This site is built with Eleventy (of which I am an official supporter!), a fantastic static site generator. I used Dan Urbanowicz's boilerplate as a starting point. I run gulp in front of my build to compile my Sass to CSS and minify styles and scripts alike, then inline them to reduce HTTP requests.
Hosting is provided by Netlify, free of charge, since I don't generate much traffic… Still good to support these fine folks, though!
Thanks to all the designers who create '80s-infused visuals that fuelled my inspiration. You provide invaluable visuals to the world.
The font used for headings is the beautiful Marvin Visions Bold (free for personal use), that perfectly fits this site's aesthetic. The other fonts you see here are your system's default — yay, performance!

A good computer with a real Escape key, after all these years with a virtual one.
- Dell U2518D Monitor
A big screen for big code.
- Autonomous AI ErgoChair 2 (disclaimer: contains a referral ID, gives you a discount)
I think they recently renamed this to be ErgoChair Pro but it's a good chair.

I sit a lot, so having a desk that easily goes from sitting to standing is really helpful.

Frees up some space on my desk with easily adjusted position, good stuff.

Simple, reliable earbuds for "casual" audio listening, and useful for video meetings.
- Sony MDR-XB950N1 over-ear headphones
Quality earphones for more "focused" listening, with noise-cancelling.
- Mozilla Firefox
I've been using Firefox since version 3 or something, and it's never disappointed me — love the DevTools!

Love how powerful and extendable this editor is! I notably use these additions:
- Adobe Illustrator
I love working with vectors! I optimise my work with SVGOMG and then manually tweak them to be just right.
A little git tool that helps me avoid making big mistakes.
Beautiful tool to compress images better, you won't regret it.
Thanks to my friend Youcef for giving me feedback every single time I asked him if a pixel looked out of place.
And thanks to my partner Ilona for dealing with me every time I said "One second, just fixing a thing on my website!", even though it took me half an hour.
Finally: thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate it!
