Preparing to move my home office to another room after 20+ years, so you can probably imagine...
Found a couple of gems:
* The first USB stick / thumb drive I ever bought. I remember when and where by association with another significant event (daughter's wedding). March 2005, a whopping 256MB for $60. Still works too!
* A pocket USB hard disk I came by around that era. Seagate ST625211USB, if anyone wants to look it up. About 7cm dia, 1.5cm thick. 2.5 GB of real spinning rust. Again, still works!
Haven't yet unearthed my old tower, Pentium III, iirc. Shipped with Win ME, upgraded to XP as soon as it was available. Must be 22 or 23 years old. Hmmm, should I fire it up for old times sake?
Software rusts. Simon Stephenson, ca 1994. So does this signature. me, 2012
