On a personal level
I am a full on geek that loves to read tech news, watch tech videos, and follow the latest developments of companies. Other than tech, I am very into photography, cycling, and wrestling. Photography, for me, is how I like to express my talents of taking pictures and shooting videos. Additionally, I like taking pictures of the city and nature itself. It allows me to express what I see to other people in other parts of the world, like my family from Poland. Recently, I have gotten into shooting timelapses, so I hope to do more of that. I am also a huge wrestling fan and really like watching wrestling weekly. I understand its scripted entertainment, storylines, but I still feel very entertained by it. Cycling is something I have been doing, since the fourth grade, with a passion. If there is a place I can get to without driving or even walking, I will ride my bike.
On a geek level
My current smartphone is a Pixel 3 with Android 10. I am strong supporter of stock Android and fast updates, going back to the Nexus line; my first smartphone was a Nexus 5. My current computer is a Lenovo Legion 5i 15 inch laptop with a RTX 2060 (6GB of VRAM), 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD + 2TB SSD (taken out of my old Macbook Pro). I was previously on a MacBook Pro 15 inch laptop from Mid 2012, personally maxed out with a 2TB SSD and 16GB of RAM. I have 2 decent Linux servers where everything from my website to projects (mmBNC, mmRadio, mmTS) are hosted. One Linux server has a Intel quad core processor with 1GB of RAM and SSD storage while the other has a Intel dual core processor with 512MB of RAM and SSD storage. Both run on Debian 9 with PHP 7, Nginx, and MySQL.
