## Another 4WD, another death... @ Adrian Tritschler · Monday, Apr 18, 2005 · 1 minute read · Update at Apr 18, 2005 ·

Adelaide this time, another dead cyclist, another drunk motorist gets off with a slap on the wrist. Five glasses of wine, then run into someone in your four-wheel drive and kill them — NO PROBLEM — the court will acquit you. What the hell does it take to convict people in this country? Oddly enough, the police found that they had time and resources to take a blood alcohol reading from the victim, but had insufficient resources to take a reading from the lawyer who had hit him!

McGee was convicted of driving without due care but can be fined no more than $1250 — about a day’s pay for him based on the average$250 an hour rate for Supreme Court barristers.

Well done Eugene McGee, drinking, getting in your 4WD, driving, running over people — you’re damn near getting away with murder.

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.
