Bought a dirt cheap Chuwi V17HD tablet a few weeks ago from China as I needed something cheap and cheerful for testing. It had a fake version of KitKat on it and was really what you would expect for 30 quid. So, after rooting it, I flashed Rockchip Nexus 7 and sweet Jesus this thing is impressive. Nice and fast with its quad core processor and in its benchmark test, while not amazing it still rates higher than a Nexus 7. Very impressed. #chuwi #rom #rockchip #android

Passed my ISTQB certification exam in software testing a couple of days ago which is awesome. Today I spend the day learning Selenium with Python. This is an excellent way to spend the weekend.

DAMN YOU WINDOWS!!! I still use a Windows laptop for some audio recording for new song ideas. There's nothing more frustrating than being half way through recording a new track and Windows decides to install new updates and restart the laptop all by its self, making me lose everything. Brilliant. #ihateyouwindows

I'm gonna take a wild stab in the dark and say that my Godus world is probably pretty screwed considering I last looked at it 4 months ago.

I would like £800 so I can buy the new Pixel. I think it is very important I have one.

So I'm doing robotics as part of a module in my degree at the minute. Ever since starting it, I've fallen down the YouTube black hole of videos. #robotics #atlas
