Kellos - random ramblings logo

Welcome to Kellos.uk – a site where the random ramblings of David Bowring are shared.

You might be wondering what is “Kellos”? Is it some sort of knock-off cereal brand? Well I’m afraid it’s quite nerdy really; it was the name of a Shadow Priest in World of Warcraft that I created back when that game was new (some might say when it was still good), and it’s kind of stuck as my online tag..

I’m a guy from the UK and I’ve lived here all my life. I work in IT in a Technical Operations role which I’m passionate about.

I enjoy gaming, drone freestyle and racing as well as photography (the black and white images on this site are my own). 

I intend to keep adding to my site so I hope there’s something of interest to read in my blog (if not now, then later). 

Finally, if you’d like to get in touch, please use the contact page as I’d love to hear from you.  You can use the social links below to follow me.

Blog

I started a Twitch and Youtube channel

I’ve got a bit of spare time on my hands at the moment (thank you Covid-19). I thought I will finally get around to doing some streaming and creating some Youtube videos for fun. Find me here on Twitch and here on Youtube. Don’t be shy, drop in and say hi 🙂

Our cats

We recently adopted a rescue cat called Mowgli. He’s a bit scared of noises, but he’s a very friendly boy. Our other cat Ruby is slowly (very slowly) warming to the idea of having another cat in the house.

New PC Cinebench Benchmarks

Time to benchmark my new Intel I7-9700K. Cinebench is a free app that will use each core individually to render an image. Essentially the quicker it completes, the higher the score. The more cores you have and the faster the clock speed of each core, the better the results.

Quadcopter / Racing Drones

My biggest hobby is flying quadcopters (or as some call them; drones).  I’m not really interested in flying around with a huge camera underneath, taking nice photos..  What I do is shove some goggles on my face and fly my quad at 70 mph as if I’m sitting in the pilots seat!


Currently I’m flying a QAV-R for racing, and a Chameleon for having a blast.


Here are a couple of my favourite videos, check them out.

Gaming

I’ve been into gaming since I was very young.  I used to play games (and program in BASIC) on my grandparent’s Spectrum 48K at the age of about 5.

I’m mainly playing games on the PC or PlayStation if I’m looking to relax.  I’m always up for a FPS, but I also like RPG and turn based games.  One of my all time favourite games is XCOM, I’ve played the various releases of that since I was around 16.
