Welcome to the shed!
In the summer of 2017 in an effort to expand my skills, i set myself the task of building my own weather station and display the output on the internet, this was the result of that challenge.
During the past few weeks i have decided to downgrade the server i use from an old desktop to a Raspberry Pi
in an effort to reduce my electricity consumption.
This has also given me an opportunity to look over the content of the site, so i have been looking at the traffic the site is getting to see which sections can be kept and which need to go or change.
I have discovered that i get more traffic from search engines and bots trying to hack into my site than i get genuine visitors.
So, i have decided to reduce the site down to the bare minimum (for the time being) to re-evaluate my position.
This is still an ongoing project but i need to determine which direction the site will take.
The content and structure of the site will change in the future.
I am still interested in the following but have not yet decided which to focus on:
- Weather watching
- Picture making
- Train spotting
- History hunting
40E was originally the designation of a railway motive power depot in Colwick, Nottingham, where my father started work at the end of World War 2 as an engine cleaner,
and almost 20 years later became an engine driver. The site logo (40E) represents a plate fitted to the front of a steam locomotive to show it's home depot (Shed).
It has been re-purposed for my own personal internet branding, and is dedicated to my father.
