Powered by a whole foods plant based diet, a Raspberry Pi and an over-active imagination


Welcome to Incommunique. I am a bloke from the hills in Perth, Western Australia. In case it wasn’t obvious from the short version of the about I have a large interest in the world. The purpose of this blog is to give me a space to write about whatever happens to tickle my fancy- hopefully there will be something to tickle yours as well.

In case you are interested in the geeky details I am running this blog on a Raspberry Pi at the end of a Vivid wireless broadband connection. If it ever gets any traffic the whole thing will melt. I could have thrown this up on Blogger or WordPress or some other platform but the geek in me (I was a Unix admin long before I was a project manager) likes hosting and running my own space. We can’t have a free, open and independent internet if every-one just hosts on the big players any-way.

I generate the content with gvim and the blog with Hugo with the Bootstrap v4 theme. Bootstrap turned out to be not compatible with the version of Hugo available on Raspbian so I generate the static files from my Fedora desktop and scp them over.

Disclaimer: the views and opinions expressed here are my own and do not represent any organisation or company. Further they are captured at a point in time, and I may change my mind. Finally one of the purposes (for me) of writing is to explore a topic and sometimes when you explore you head down a wrong track, so I may have just stuffed up. Please take all of the above into account before you get worked up about anything and remember- it’s the Internet, people are wrong on the internet all the time.
