After a long and difficult search

Found a hub I can use with a Pi Zero

It's all about me...

I'm a 48 year old married father who works with websites for a living. Doing that for work means I dont often update this site, unless I can think of something useful to say. I mostly like taking photos - and most of my internet presence now will be related to that.
