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 Fedora virtual machine hosted by Vultr and fronted by CloudFlare . I could have thrown this up on Blogger or WordPress or some other platform but the geek in me (I was a Unix admin 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 did self host on a Raspberry Pi on the home network for a while but, to no-ones surprise, that proved impractical. I generate the content with Vim/gVim and the blog with Hugo with the Bootstrap v4 theme.

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.
