“Interests and hobbies: Due to my day job as a self-employed technical author, I'm forever looking for 'smelling pistakes' in my daily life. Even so far as taking pictures of them or grabbing screenshots from social media and they're all stored on an FB group under the same name.
“Also like real/craft ale, retro and modern computing and 'basic' photography using my smartphone or bridge camera.”
