Well, the roof doesn't leak now!

 Here it is nearly the end of a not very good year for most of the planet..At least the kitchen/family room roof doesn't leak any more! I am now working on a major shed cleanout and fitting new shelving, however not sure that I can get everything that came out back in again! The Shed roof needs repair, I need to seal up the gap between the corrugated iron roofing and the brick wall capping and refix some of the sheets with roofzips.

We did get the NotBN working in October with a sane ISP (Newsprout) who were able to setup the routing and BGP for our public IP /24 network. Hooray!!!

Have done with Facebook (again); it vacuums up too much time and I spent a lot of fruitless effort trying to get it to work the way I wanted, but the Zuck machine kept sending me 'suggestions': cancelling them was a real chore. Actually, I never did understand how it was supposed to work. Instagram is even more enigmatic; I got some photos onto it, but was never able to find them again.. My siblings and children seem to spend a lot of time on it, but maybe they are more efficient!
