I have heard about hardware UUID and other complicated technical terms from my best friend who is a computer engineer and all these complicated words and pictures make me feel as if that is so alien thing. I work in a dissertation help UK based company and my whole world revolves around words and books and this world of machines, coding seems alien to me still we both are friends. https://dissertationwritinghelp.uk/
