## 02-Dec-96, Hit with object thrown from car @ Adrian Tritschler · Monday, Dec 2, 1996 · 1 minute read · Update at Dec 2, 1996 ·

Riding west along Waverley road after leaving Jells Park at about 6 pm I suddenly was belted on the left hip and buttock with an object, the shock made me swerve, hit the gutter, and swerve back out into the traffic, I looked up to see four or five teenage guys in a blue Commodore with P-plates (Victorian registration ###-###) laughing and swearing out the windows. The object was some form of water-bomb, I believe a plastic juice bottle.

When I got home I decided to report it to the local police – Murrumbeena Station – and was greeted with disinterest, officer A. Stewart took the details on a scrap of notepaper, looked up the regoistration and said that since the car was registered to someone near where it had happened he would give them a call and then phone me the following day. I never received a follow up phone call.

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

# …The Site

I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.

Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
