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 just wrote a little blog post about web design and development using ChromeOS. Have a wee look and feel free to abuse me for my poor writing ability http://simsiesims.wordpress.com/2014/05/31/chromeos-but-its-just-a-browser/ #chromeos   #webdesign   #webdevelopment   #google

I go on and off learning to code all the time. I get easily distracted by the likes of clouds, shiny things and the now 9 guitars that just happen to be sitting about in every corner of my apartment. But Codeacademy is awesome. I'm making my way through the HTML, CSS, jQuery and JavaScript tutorials at the minute. Though I am leaving JavaScript to last as I have been informed I will likely want to put my own head through a wall. If anyone's come across any good sites or tutorials to compliment this, let me know!

Hello everyone! If you've a spare moment, please head on over to the link below and check out the song I and my band recorded for a competition to be featured on a Fat Wreck Chords documentary. Somehow we're in the top 5 with 180 votes in just a couple of days. If you wouldn't mind checking it out, hitting Share / Embed and clicking on like, that would be awesome. http://dangrecords.bandcamp.com/track/bracket-2rak005 #punk   #punkrock    #nofx    #fatwreck   #fatwreckchords   #documentary

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

An interesting read on web design for wearable tech. #webdesign #wearabletech #wearabletechnology #webdevelopment  
Remember how wearing a calculator watch back in the day made you feel like George Jetson or his boy Elroy? Technology has come a long way from spelling out

Minimalism is a design style that emphasizes simplicity and the removal of surplus elements in a design, stripping it down to its basic elements,
