Program Usage
Discord The best cross-platform chat app for text, video and voice chat - used by more than 250 million people worldwide. It's like the best of Skype and TeamSpeak³ combined, but all for free and every platform (Everyone can create his own community server, totally for free with a lot of settings, permissions, groups, bots, and much more.).

Yes, I know that Discord may not be the most secure Chatting Application. But who cares? I treat every message and every Chat with the Reaility in mind that anybody could potentially screenshot and read it, and so should you!




Favored Web-Browsers

I still use Mozilla because Chromium based browser seem to lag with my Nextcloud or when I'm on older machines with not that much RAM. Also, Firefox has some niche extensions I yet have not found on Chrome.

nmap Free and open source, nearly-all-plattform (It is a CLI-Tool, but I use it only with its (official) GUI named "Zenmap"), portable utility for network discovery and security auditing.

Intel XTU Intel's "Extreme Tuning Utility" lets you tune, overview and benchmark like every parameter a cpu can possibly have (And it isn't software-level-configuration. It is configuring the cpu parameters itself - so they stay until a system-crash (like BSOD) occurs and resets them to their defaults). I mostly use it for undervolting Laptop CPU's and to check if a CPU is Power-Throtteling.

    • Tekkit Lite - Similar to FTB-Lite, but without magic
    • Tekkit-Classic - Most awesome Skyblock-Idea of all time which i fell in love with:
      • Concept: Nearly each block in the game has a "material-value". Using a magic table or chest, you can transform your farmed items into this value, store it, and also exchange it back into items that match your gathered value.
      • You can build automated farms to harvest the value and exchange them into the items you want (e.G: Tubes for Item-Transport, Redstone that can stick to side of blocks, Block-Breakers, "Solar-like Panels" which turn sun-energy into the material-value, and much more...)
      • The Modpack includes a big amount of Mods from Tekkit-Lite with energy but also adds lots of magic (e.G: A ring that lets you fly freely at the cost of the mentioned material-value)
