A rundown of the "Tools I use" links
Tools... We all have some that we rely on for various things. What you see on the left hand side (if you are seeing this from a computer screen) are things I use, and aren't meant as an endorsement etc. Since a couple of them are investing things, note: I'm not a financial advisor, and won't offer advice.
Webull: a popular platform for investing. I switched to it from Robinhood after the issues earlier in January (2021).
Robinhood: a popular platform for investing: I leave a link to it, mostly because it may be useful to some folks.
Online Photo Editor: Pretty self explanatory, is it perfect? nope. Will it do some basic stuff easier than installing specialized software? Yes.
Free stock images: This is Pixabay. It's what the vast majority of the images you see here are from. A couple (pretty obvious ones that aren't "professional") are ones I took.
Domains: If you want a website, and you don't want to pay crazy prices for the domain... Google Domains is fantastic.
Spiceworks: This is kind of a go to for most techs I know. Think of Facebook, but really meant only for computer techs. I use this a lot when I am stumped on a repair.
Ninite: A great free tool for doing mass installs/updates of common software packages. They have a paid for service as well that is worth investigation should you need it for more of an enterprise wide deployment.
ProtonMail/VPN: A great tool if you want a good VPN or Encrypted email service. They have free options, but the paid for ones help keep the service going.
Wayback Machine: This has been super handy. If you see something online and want to make sure that a copy of it is accessible later for research etc, use this site. It's part of Archive.org.
