The @aussocialadmin suggested I write an post so why not he says.

I'm Peter from where The Cat runs the household. A pretty wide range of interests and always keen to learn new stuff.

A life long fan, I love most things but firmly in the camp when it comes to Star Trek Vs Star Wars.

Probably have too many subscriptions to streaming channels but have a goal of a minimum 26 books a year to make sure I'm not always staring at a screen.

Other things I find interesting are a good (love a good pinot noir), hunting down a great gin and cocktail, and '80s music.

I tell people the main reason I go to work is so I can go on holidays as I love to

The @BNELights bot worked correctly tonight, first go 🥳

It's currently running in a little Node Docker container, and I'm not sure how long it'll stay alive, or if it'll restart itself if it breaks. But for a little side project I reckon that's alright. I should do some blog.

Queen and ABC coverage 

The ABC sent 27 staff to cover the death of the Queen and they’re just running the BBC feed for the funeral. What are the 27 staff doing today, the culmination and biggest event of the 10 days. Headed home presumably if they’re not working.

Made pizza for lunch. That means I can have a glass of wine as well. I don’t make the rules.

“Compared with dairy production, synthetic milk is likely to have a smaller carbon footprint and cause less pollution, and obviously eliminates animal welfare concerns, she says.”

Using Focus, I’ve set up my iPhone to change home screens at night. Now the cat is giving me a look of disapproval for using my phone. 🐈
