Day: April 23, 2006

  • Den Archeology

    I spent part of yesterday cleaning up and organizing the den (the last holdout of the rebel packing box forces) and found quite a few things along the way. Among old papers, reciepts, notes, and general crap there were some interesting stuff. Here is a sampling:

    • 5/31/2000: Invoice for my AMD Athlon 750 CPU. That CPU in an Abit KA7-100 motherboard treated me quite well.
    • 8/05/2000: A packing slip for several Billy Pilgrim albums from the (long gone) I wish that I had snagged a few more before went under.
    • 1/3/2002: Registration confirmation to watch a Steve Jobs keynote via satellite at Apple’s Northern Virginia campus.
    • 7/5/2002: My reciept for Radio Userland 8.0.8. That’s also the day that I switched my tech content from LiveJournal to my Radio blog.
    • 7/20/2002: A printout of my Amazon Web Services developer token.
    • 8/26/2002: Windows Beta product key for ITX (.NET Server RC)
    • 10/12/2002: An Airtran bording pass from BWI to Boston for the Web Services DevCon East.
    • 2/28/2003: packing slip for my newly ebay‘d Intel ISP 1100 1U server. I also found reciepts for the processor, memory, and hard drive that I stuck in it.
    • 10/03: In the margin of class notes I wrote down some thoughts on mobile wikis and mobile FOAF.
    • 11/03: Some notes on weathermob, a mobile webapp that I’ve thought about off and on again for years but have never done anything with.

    Per usual, I spent way too much time looking at stuff and not enough time actually cleaning. A trip down geeky memory lane is quite nice every once in awhile though.
