In My Own Words:
I have a very varied experience of life. I have travelled extensively, speak several languages to intermediate level and a few more to 'pigeon' level.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was reminiscent of my O Level Technology days and highly engaging. An excellent way to get teenagers interested in hands on technology and programming. My daughter loves taking things apart and seeing how they work but she also loves computers. This book was perfect for her and she felt she had accomplished something after each little 'project'. It is great for a teenager and parent to do together and whilst it is highly educational and en point with today's techie stuff it is also very engaging, interesting and actually fun. ZX spectrum and QBasic was my era, this was so much better.

Excellent piece of kit!

The second option is to attach the 'spoke' adapter to use the… Read more
Plantronics 86050-05 Gamecom 380 Gaming Headset by Plantronics
Good comfy headset, clear sound. I use them for Skyping and I can hear the other person perfectly and they can also hear me clearly. There is a noise cancellation on the microphone which helps, so the other person does not hear all the surrounding noise around me. Nicely adjustable, both for the head size and the angle of the earpieces.

great piece of kit!
