Yet another steak. Delicious. Baby spinach and pine nuts with cream sauce. Some pesto pasta salad leftover from a BBQ.

Today I put together some pasties for tea with leftover roast lamb and bbq chicken. I didn't even need to add extra veggies as there were plenty of roast potatoes and pumpkin to put in.

More power rail testing. I wrote an expect script to step through each outlet and power cycle it. You can watch as this happens to verify that the relay clicks and indicator lights are lit / extinguished. This gives you a reasonable idea whether everyhing is functioning correctly.

Got a few APC power rails to test, so today I threw together a quick 20A test fixture. It allows you to connect a 20A appliance into a 10A power socket. You can't run the rails at 20A of course, but it's enough to fire up the rail and validate that all the switching and control works correctly.
