Why has Peter been so quiet?

I’m posting this entry on behalf of Peter (my name is Jonathan – a long time friend of Peter who he has mentioned a few times in the blog). Peter says:
“Unfortunately last Friday (December 15th) I was taken ill and find myself in hospital. While I am making a slow but steady recovery, it will be a few weeks before I am well enough to continue my adventures in electronics, but In the meantime I hope to have a few guest posts and will be keeping up with any conversations as best I can. Jonathan will post some updates on my health and my friend MrShark will try and help with any technical queries. Please do keep an eye on the blog and I look forward to resuming normal service as soon as I am able.

  1. Peter I hope you are taking it easy and recovering. I know what its like as in 2012 I didn’t feel to good and went to Düsseldorf uni clinic on a Sunday in July 2012. I reached the reception that’s all I remember till 6 days later when I woke up in the intensive care ward, having had a heart attack in the hospital. They did a quad byepass on me.

    After 26 days I was discharged and sent on a “cure”- In Germany after an operation you go on a 4 week intensive post op training and eating stint.

    Anyway what I wanted to say is that it takes a bit of time to recover just one step at a time will do it.
    I wish you and your family all the best in health and happiness, and that you will be blogging for many years to come

  2. Best wishes Peter for a quick recovery. Always enjoyed this blog and look forward to you continuing it.

  3. Get well soon Pete..!
    In the last 6-8 months, I’ve transmogrified from an average human to a sensor-savvy IoT-speaking node-reddened humanoid and your blog has played a crucial role in all that. Here’s looking forward to a lot more new adventures and experiments in the new year. Stay safe!
    Greetings and cheers from India.

  4. We’ll be waiting for you here in Spain. My best wishes for all the friends here in the blog, and specially for you in 2018. I hope you are getting better everyday.


  5. Peter,

    Sorry to read of the difficulties you are having! You and your loved ones are in my prayers for complete and speedy recovery, as well as peace and comfort in the difficulties you are facing.

    As many have already said we are selfishly awaiting your return to the IOT workbench. Your contributions – dare I say leadership – are missed and we eagerly await news of your recovery.



  6. Get well soon Peter.

    Stop thinking about electronics until you are fine, then go ahead.

    Happy new year.

  7. Oh dear! Not the way to spend Christmas or the New Year celebrations! Best wishes from Ireland, hoping you have a speedy recovery. Get well soon Pete!

  11. Best wishes Pete and please don’t try to hack the medical equipment as I did when the nurses could get the wireless heart rate monitor working.

    Still, it did get me lots of attention when the “He’s dead again” alarm kept going off. Eventually, they just ignored it!!!!

    and if you want to sound knowledgeable about the MRI just ask them how the pin diodes are goin!

  13. Pete, that is bad news and I wish that you recover soon and complete. One realizes only when someone with never exhausting energy has to slow down for a while. Best wishes from Zurich.

  14. Pete, sorry to hear that, I’m sure you’re in the best possible place. As I’m in Greece, I’ll say περαστικά (get well soon!!!!). Spain will be waiting for you in the spring.

  21. Best wishes and patience. Hacking is a joy but there are more important todos in life, temporarily.

  22. Best wishes for a quick recovery. To spend the time in hospital, make a list of what you could project once this hard time has passed. Warmest regards. Manlio

    All the very best from ‘Down Under’


  27. Peter,

    Sorry to hear you have been taken Ill. Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery.


  28. After hearing that Peter suffered a stroke I’ve been extremely worried for him (and for myself – where would I get my regular tech fixes from!).

    My wife suffered a stroke 5 years ago, and for a while all she could say was “Fish and Chips” and “Giraffe”. Useful phrases in some situations, but somewhat limiting when it comes to having a deep and meaningful conversation. It sound as though Peter is in a much better position, for which I’m extremely thankful.

    Hope you’re home from hospital soon.

  29. Peter
    Though I don’t pretend to understand at first reading everything you post, you have been my inspiration to keep on trying for months now and it is a lonely place without you for this geriatric. Take it easy and come back whole, please. Thanks also to your elves who took over the sled when Rudolph needed help.

  30. Thank you for the high quality of this blog. I’ve enjoyed it and have learned quite a bit. Have a speedy recovery and Merry Christmas.

  31. Dang, just when you thought you would be able to tinker with all those Christmas presents! Probably not a good idea to be using a soldering iron with all the oxygen in the hospital anyway. 🙂 But, seriously, take it easy, and when you get back home, just ease back into a full schedule. As they say, it is the quality (of the posts,) not the quantity that counts. That is what I love about your blog. It’ s great that you have others to help out. Use them. 🙂
    Be well, and take care.

  32. Best wishes for a speedy recovery,
    I hope you can get back to your passion soon!
    My RSS feed reader is waiting for your new posts 😉
    Happy holidays to you to all your family

  33. Peter, I just found you a short time ago and have been anticipating each new post. Please get well soon because YOU OWE ME! Just kidding.

  34. Peter, all my our very best wishes for a complete and speedy recovery. I miss your inspirational writings and the stimulus you provide to encourage others to share their own experiences and supplier sources.
    I also thank Antonio for his invaluable input and Jonathan for the timely update.

  35. Peter,
    And here I thought you were just taking a well deserved break…
    Best wishes for a speedy recovery and all the best in the years ahead.
    You are such a valued contributor to this ecosystem.
    I will be waiting with anticipation your next installments.
    Get well soon!

  36. Peter, all the best for a speedy recovery. Enjoy your blog and the rumour you throw at it. Makes for easy reading. Hoping the Season and the New Year find you recovered and back at the electronics.

  37. Wishing your recovery is in turbo mode and they release you with the best upgrades. Because besides really enjoying your hacking adventures, you need to get better so you can turn off these darn snow flakes. They are just sparse enough that every time I visit I think there’s a spider or ant or something climbing down my screen. 😉

    Get well Peter

  38. Best wishes for a speedy recovery Peter. Your blogs serve as inspiration to keep looking at new stuff. You also cost me money but I’ll let you off with that one. 🙂
    All the best to you and Maureen.

  39. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Peter. I look forward to seeing your very informative blogs soon.

  40. It was quite a shock to hear you were hospitalised. I wish you all the best and a full recovery and I think we are all missing your inspiring blog messages. From this message I understand you have good hopes to be fully active as usual, We are thinking of you and your family in these dificult times. “See” you in action when you are ready for that!
