I tend to change hardware a fair bit — with certain exceptions. Of late I’ve tried to relax my hardware hopping habits. So for reference, or just to show off, this is the hardware I’m using now. These will change from time to time, I do have a tendency to swap the entire contents of PCs based on my current requirements so I’ll try to keep updating this page as and when.
