About

My name is Harriet Lawrie and I am 25 years old. I live and work in the Midlands, UK

My favourite animal is the squirrel. So cute. I think I have too many books and I definately have too many PC games. I could probably live just on pasta. I have a red bike that I like to ride when the sun is out. My hair used to be so long it was almost touching my knees. I have two dogs, Indie and Benji, Indie’s full name is Indie Noodles Rockstar and she likes to shred post. Benji is actually a small polar bear who will eat anything. Harry Potter is my favourite book. I love getting into TV series, Orphan Black is probably my favourite. The best holidays involve hot countries and doing nothing but reading by the pool. I have a sister that is 2 years younger than me and a brother who is 15 years younger than me (I spoil him lots).

Web Development

I have been making websites since I was about 14 years old. I started learn HTML on Neopets.com and then progressed to making websites on freewebs.com (now webs.com)

I have made websites mostly for personal projects, and projects for school, college and university.

I use LAMP (Linux Apache MySql PHP) for all my personal projects. At work we use C#.net, Razor and Windows Server.

For front-end I like to try all sorts but I usually stick to a combo of Bootstrap and JQuery, I would like to move to AngularJS and make Progressive Web Apps in the future.


Computers

I have been tinkering with computers since my first computer running Windows 3.1

My current computer is a beastly gaming machine that I built myself.

I also have several Raspberry Pi computers doing various things, one is currently a webserver and another is a retro games console emulator.


Games

I have been gaming since I could hold my Dad's Gameboy.

I have owned various Gameboys, a PS2, an XBOX360 and various PC's that I have played games on.

Some of my all time favourite games are: Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magic Obscura (PC), Diablo 2 (PC), Tony Hawk's Underground (PS2), Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PS2), Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy (PS2), Fallout 3 (PC).


Music

I like listening to many types of music, but I have a strong preference for rock music (metal, punk, pop-punk, rap-metal, pretty much everything but christian rock), closely followed by rap / hip-hop.

I often go to see bands, some of the bands I have seen include: Rise Against, Anti-flag, Avenged Sevenfold, Five Finger Death Punch, Blink-182, Disturbed, Sum 41, Bowling for Soup, Billy Talent, Hollywood Undead, Fallout Boy and many more
