Miscellaneous Opinions

Leuchtturm1917 Journals

POSITIVE (Last Updated: 2022-05-03)

Consistently high quality paper, features, and bindings with hard covers that are available in multiple colours. The paper is also some of my favourite to write on.

Rhodia Paper Products

POSITIVE (Last Updated: 2022-05-25)

Excellent paper and a wide variety of sizes, prints, and form factors. My favourite are the top bound spiral notebooks with dot grid printing, orange covers, and A5 size paper, but I’ve also used some notebooks and other notepads from them over the years.

Casio fx-991EX Calculator

POSITIVE (Last Updated: 2022-05-03)

A fantastic, versatile, and durable calculator with many functions including: solving integrals and derivatives, linear systems of equations, and matrices. The visual equation display also makes it very easy to read what’s on the screen. I prefer to always have it with me wherever I am, as I find it much nicer to use than a calculator on my PC or phone.

Skullcandy Earbuds

POSITIVE (Last Updated: 2022-05-03)

The only pairs of earbuds that I have ever purchased which have lasted longer than a handful of months. They are also the ones that sit most comfortably and securely in my ears, and I like the sound profile. I keep buying their ~$30 pair of wired earbuds (I have only had to buy two pairs over the past three years).

Busybox

NEGATIVE (Last Updated: 2022-05-03)

Added awful, disgusting quality code to one of their utilities all to avoid having someone’s name and copyright associated with the project.
