all about me

Some are commonly known like the Lamborghini, well like the name is common, but you never see it. Some are faster than the Lambo and Bugatti and never heard of, like the keoningsegg one:1. Some are for luxury like the Aston martin V12 Vantage and some are there so they can troll people like my last pic. Cars mean more to me than just a thing that takes you some take us to new limits help us to get to places faster and look awesome.

I love listening to fallout boy looking at memes and playing popular games such as minecraft, need for speed world CSR asphalt 8 and clash of clans.I also love that moment when you pause a video or movie at the right time so that it freezes in a funny face or position like bob up there.


A  guy long ago named Abacus made a calculator that could multiply divide add  and subtract.

later a man named Charles Babbage made machine that would calculate by using punch card and gears and wheels would do the basic things are computers do today input storage processes output. then in WWII the geniuses down in  DC  made a  machine called ENIAC that would calculate all the infantry numbers and Calvary numbers in the war.

then in the 1970's Steve jobs and his friend made a computer in their garage. later this computer would be sold to the public instead of just to the government receiving it.this started a new trend for computers and now more companies started selling home computers. soon dell, hp, apple, windows, and lenovo started to compete for the best computer.later bill gates invented Microsoft a company that would do great things with technology.

this is Steve jobs showing his companies new mobile computer also know as the iPhone 4s a computer thatwas made in 2008

computer components

computers rely on many different parts to get things done in a matter of seconds. some of the parts are:

  • motherboard
  • CPU
  • heat sink
  • power supply
  • optical drive
  • expansion slots
  • RAM
  • ROM
  • hard drive

These components work in the computer like the following.

Motherboard, holds all components together and contains buses that transfer the signals from part to part.

CPU, is the main part that allows the signals to activate and completing most of the computers commands.

The Heat Sink, takes all of the heat away from the CPU so when it starts to overheat the heat sink comes in and takes it away so that the computer has more time to compute and not overheat.

The Power Supply, gives electricity to all of the other components.

Optical Drive, holds the graphic data and displays the games DVDs and CD's.

The Expansion Slots, are piece where you can upgrade your computer by adding video cards more ROM and RAM

RAM, is short for random access memory this allows you to pull up things that aren't saved to your computer.

ROM, is short for read only memory this allows to you to view the thing that you have saved to your computer.

The Hard Drive, is the thing that is also like ROM it permanently saves everything to your computer even if you click the delete button.

When typing you go pretty slow but when you use the home row system you get alot faster at typing.

These are my before and after scores when using it.

After using the home row system

the home row system assigns each finger 3-6 key.

  1. with the home row you put your left hand pinky on the A key.
  2. that should fall in line with your first finger touching the F key.
  1. now put your right hand pinky on the '/" key.
  2. your index finger should land on the J key.

great you learned the basics of home row now go to the link below to practice faster.
