My review of the services website Fiverr - http://www.thegeekblog.co.uk/reviews/2016/10/29/fiverr

As well as "geeking" I have a keen interest in cycling. As we are getting close to winter, so I can keep training I bought myself a Turbo Trainer, if you cycle you know when its freezing and raining it's not nice being out in it.

Recently I hit a bit of a milestone birthday, and one of the great gifts I received was the new Amazon Echo. I have heard good things about these and what they can do so I was quite happy to get one. It is very simple and easy to setup and within a couple of minutes she was up and running and ready to work. This is where I will offer my first bit of advice, if you have kids, leave it there and let them get it out of their system, ...

Floowing on from previous posts, this is how I back up all my Pythonista scripts from my iOS devices to Dropbox

http://www.thegeekblog.co.uk/the-geek-blog/2016/7/27/backup-pythonista-script-to-dropbox
This is a follow-up article to my recent post on "How I get my SQLite database onto my iOS devices using Pythonista". I have the simple script and every time I make a change, or I add a new script in, I will run this and it will push all the scripts into dropbox for me. I have a separate folder and store them different from all the other scripts I have. import os import dropbox from dropboxlogin import get_client dropbox_cli...
