    Hey guys, here's my EDC gear at the time of my registration. It's not supposed to survive a zombie apocalypse and rebuild the civilisation. It's contains only things I think I (might) "need" occasionally in my every day life.

    I divide my EDC gear in 3 Levels:


    Level 0 - My watch (normally it's counted as Level 1, but I forgot it when I made the other photos because it's not in my pockets - so for today it's Level 0)

    [​IMG]

    1. Tawatec E.O.Diver (made from carbon-fiber-reinforced carbon, red tritium illumination)


    Level 1 - The stuff in the pockets of my pants:

    [​IMG]

    4. Maru Mini 3x3x3 Rubic's Cube
    5. UZI Tactical Pen with Fisher Space Pen Cartridge
    6. HTC Desire (has some scratches because it has fallen several times on every existing type of hard ground)
    7. Victorinox CyberTool Lite
    8. Car Key
    9. old very used noname(?) wallet
    10. Rite in the Rain all-weather notebook

    1. Netbook (Samsung NC10 with Windows XP)
    2. Netbook (Samsung NC10 with Ubuntu)
    3. Logitech VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse
    4. Dayan LingYun Speedcube / Rubic's Cube

    7. tissues
    8. Fenix TK35 (820 lm, 2x18650 Li-Ion)
    9. Solarforce L2P with 3-Mode Ultrafire XM-L Drop-In (~700lm, 1x18650 Li-Ion)

    11. three 1mW laserpointer (red, green, blue/violet)

    Level 3 - The stuff in my car

    [​IMG]

    0. Surefire G2Z (just for size comparison)
    1. Sanmak SM5500 13" 100W HID searchlight (range: over 6km (without binoculars/telescope rather 2-3km))
    2. Tic Tacs (They used to blind me by reflecting the sun because they are on a small anti-slip mat under the windscreen. So I tweaked them with matte gaffer's tape.)



    I'm thrilled to hear (read) your thoughts about my gear. If you have questions about it, feel free to ask. And if you have some great ideas what I can improve or what is missing: please tell me!

    Our way of EDCing is very very similar. :) I'm loving your gear! Couple questions!

    Why do you have laser pointers?

    Do you carry a rubiks cube just for recreational purposes?

    For pointing at things. :D At the university in a lecture. While geocaching "Let's look over there". And of course just to play around with them. (Not everything that's fun must be a flashlight ;))

    I work as a programmer and when the code is compiling I have to wait. And when my smarthphone says that the internet is boring at the moment, i need my cube. Also when i'm sitting in a train/bus and nothing is happening in the internet. Or when i'm waiting somewhere and the internet is ...

    That is an epic list of lights. :)

    Oh I see! That's awesome. Laser pointers are pretty nifty. One of my buddies has one....though he didn't have nearly as many reasons as you. ;)

    I never got the rubiks cube. :) couldn't ever figure it out.

    Only a genius can figure it out by himself. But there are some techniques that aren't that hard to memorize. The easiest one works layer for layer. Solving the first layer should be possible for everyone without a manual. For the other layers you have to use some rotation-algorithms because single rotations would destroy your first layer. The layer-method uses 5 algorithms:
    1. (+ a mirrored version) Solving the middle layer. (8 rotations)
    2. Sorting the edges in the third layer. (7 rotations)
    3. Rotating the edges in the third layer. (8 rotations)
    4. Sorting the corners in the third layer. (8 rotations)
    5. (+ a mirrored version) Rotating the corners in the third layer. (8 rotations)
    So I would say, to solve the Rubik's Cube is as hard as memorizing 5 phone numbers. You just have to learn the algorithms and what seemed to be rocketscience becomes quite easy to solve in under 3 minutes.

    Maybe I'll try it one day. Hopefully I won't feel like an idiot screaming "why won't this thing solve!?" :)

    I like your setup. I was just curious about carrying two netbooks, but I think you need both for windows and linux. Just one question, why do you have these velcro tapes on your netbooks? Do you put some patches there?
    Your watch is awesome. If I have the money I'll get one of these, they're a bit expensive for me...

    That's awesome. If I have to use a card reader some time, I'll to the same. Very cool!

    I use a similar method of attaching my wifi card to my laptop. (It is so old, I have to use a USB wifi card.)
