Bio: I am a Welsh schoolboy and tech enthusiast, I created this blog on my parents recommendation who were sick of me continually ranting to them about various things (school computers, microsoft, the colour of plants, microsoft, etc.), so I created this blog! I am a big tech enthusiast and will be sure to try to review any software or hardware I buy, my interpretation of the latest tech news along with cool little CSS, HTML, PHP or bash tricks (maybe Java but I’m still learning).
