About


Hi there! My name is Gergely Szabo. I am a cloud system administrator by profession and a CS:GO trader on the side.

This website was created because of my fascination with technology and so you can find out more about me in an interactive way. All the photos are shot by me, enjoy!

Social Media


Media Consumption

I am fully transparent about my media consumption.


Movies - IMDb

Being a huge fan and consumer of film I opened up my IMDb profile, where you can check out what I watch, want to watch and all kinds of detailed statistics about my viewing and rating habits. I could write an essay on my methodology of rating movies, but my most basic rule is if I think a movie was "worth watching" I give it a rating of 6 or higher, below that are "time wasters".

Videos - YouTube

YouTube videos are the part of my everyday life. At the time of writing I am subscribed to 44 channels. The topics of these channels varies from workout to rocket science with, music, CS:GO, comedy, science and tech in between. Some of my favourites are FitnessFAQs, Tom Scott and Primitive Technology.

Music - Spotify

My music listening habits justify a monthly fee for a subscription service, I consider it one of the best values all around. I have been using Google Play Music since 2013, but recently made the switch to spotify. Here is my profile link, I have some public playlists as well. Feel free to follow me if you are interested in what I am listening to.

Books - goodreads

Listening to audiobooks every day allows me to finish a book in less than a week in average. I catalog every book I read (khm.. listen to) in my goodreads library. Favourite topics include history, biography, business, finance, technology, science, politics and philosophy. So mostly everything non-fiction. I can wholeheartedly recommend goodreads, it is an awesome way to manage your readings, explore new authors or stay motivated with a reading challenge!
