A small place to call my own on the internet, also a place to share some of my life's interests.
During 2012 I gained more interest to learn about web programming, and made a start with my main objective, to provide a way to remotely view the status of my renewable energy system for my small mountain cabin I call home. My cabin is nestled in the forest on a sunny side of a mountain on the island of Tasmania, just beneath the continent of Australia.
The renewable energy controller system I am developing I have called 'HydroSolar' as I have two energy sources. The first is energy from water, a micro-hydro turbine which produces power from a small mountain stream I have on the property. The solar energy is from the sun, photovoltaic panels. In the HydroSolar section I explain my system in greater detail.
In recent years I have taken a liking to riding a motorcycle, and so am including a section for my travels. They are not there yet as I am still in the process of putting together, spending most of my available time developing the HydroSolar controller. I hope to be able to get some stories and photos in this section during the first part of 2013.
