Progress so far - 

Had fun loading up mosquitto & client stuff on a couple of Pi
Got basics working - subscribe on one, publish on the other, woo-hoo! messages.
Got equivalent client stuff on my ESP8266 (after loading arduino IDE and all the other gunge to support that)
Re-wrote weather-sensor server python code (oh yuck. Have you actually seen python? ) to publish instread of using a RESTful server thingy.
Load mosquitto on my mac-mini-server and use that as the broker.

It kinda-sorta works nicely, except after a while (not yet worked out how long) the weather client crashes because the attempt to open up a connection that has worked several hundred times decides to fail. The error message 'socket.gaierror: [errno -2] name or service not known’ doesn’t appear to lead to any readily comprehensible info.

Wild guess right now is something to do with one or other machine going to sleep?
