Most exciting thing that happens in my village is when a duck (or moorhen) crosses the road. :wink:

To the pond.

To escape hearing your Des O'Conner LP's?

I'm playing bowls this afternoon, then got to go out afterwards not leaving any time for an evening meal.

So, I'm having a bigger late lunch, and trying out an airfryer that a friend has loaned me (to try out) and making home made chips to go with my fry up.

I know fry ups are not considered healthy but one must have the occasional pleasure in life. :D


PS It was delicious.

Bit on the Beeb news last night about dirty steaming or the environmental impact of data centres and content streaming hosted by the likes of Amazon Google etc and how bad it was.... comparable to air travel .....the news was followed by 4 Beeb program adverts all promoting iPlayer :roll:

Went to Booker for some of the weekly shop... They had packs of 24 loo rolls on a two-for-the-price-of-one, i.e. a "BOGOF" which we thought was appropriate 🚽

Spent the last few days with #2 son recabling the house with CAT6 and all Ubiquiti POE kit...

I just love Ubiquiti - professional properly managed environment for a fraction of Cisco etc...

The BT HomeHub has gone, replaced with a Vigor modem and Ubiquiti USG (effectively a router/firewall etc.). An 8 port POE switch drives the access points and wireless bridge to the office - a 24 port switch does the fixed wiring...

The whole environment, over 40 devices in total, can be managed from Ubiquiti's free phone app (from anywhere in the world) or from a desktop/tablet/whatever... Rolling out updates or new networks etc, or adding a ticketed guest WiFi portal is dead easy...

Nice Comms cabinet now in loft with proper patch panel and colour coded patch leads, UPS for all the kit plus a shadow Synology SAN that mirrors the one in my outbuildings... Media server also in there so it's on the UPS too...

So, end-to-end full 1Gb environment and all fibre ready. I'm getting 400Mb/s from my phone in the house to the server in my workshops...

Happy chappie
