I am a college student studying Information Technology at Lakes College West Cumbria. I like building computers and making them scream when they dont work.
On the outskirts of a small village called Flimby, in Cumbria in the North West of England
My favorite things to do are: gaming, photography, computer building/repair, making computer networks and playing with my dog.
The following qualifications were achieved while in attendence at Workington Academy
Digital Media: C
Business Studies: C
Motor Vehicle: Entry Level 3
Level 2 Information Technology: Merit
My dream job would be an ethical hacker or software developer
I live on the outskirts of a small village called Flimby
The idea of breaking into computer systems for the benefit of others. I am always fixing computers so it would be nice to break them so they can be fixed
My current setup consists of the following
Dell Optiplex 360 running Ubuntu 18.04.2LTS that was running this website
Early 2015 Mac Book Pro with 8GB of RAM and 152GB of storage
A new server that this website is running on
A complete new system of the following
Ryzen 5 2400G
16GB of DDR4 RAM at 2400MHZ
1TB of M.2 NVME Storage
4TB of HDD Storage. It is a Seagate BarraCuda compute drive
mATX case that comes with a front card reader built in, which is suitable for my photo taking habits
600 Watt Aero Cool power supply
All of the components in this build were sourced from Amazon.
Except the PSU, which was sourced from a local independent computer retailer based in Whitehaven Called MillTech Computers.
So in my spare time my computer runs something called BOINC. It is a piece of software that donates my spare computer resources to help scienctists with curing diseases that would other time take much longer without the help of the general public.
So whenever my computer is switched on it is doing calculations that could help cure cancers or identify what causes TB.
This little widget here shows what my computer has managed to do for helping the advancement of medical science. This widget will change with time. From the projects changing to how many points and my ranking. Its something small that is having a very big impact!
