Ancient history

My past haunts me!


I got my LiveJournal in href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/mendel/2002/03/">March 2002.
As you can see there, my first few posts weren’t exactly in my current
style; truth be told I really didn’t think I’d write much at all here.
Stimps gave me a LiveJournal code that I was sure I was
going to use to maintain a friends list, and I ended up posting
rarely anyhow. href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/mendel/2002/04/">April has
even fewer posts.


Looking back to then and reading what I wrote amuses me, but then I
remembered — before LiveJournal, I had a journal on href="http://use.perl.org/">Use Perl, which aside from being a
website about Perl is also Chris “Pudge” Nandor’s test platform for
Slash, the code that powers Slashdot. He encouraged everyone on #perl
to get a journal just to get people testing a new feature.


I found my old journal there and was sufficiently amused by the two
days’ worth of posts that were there that I have reposted them,
backdated, here. You can see them href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/mendel/2001/09/">here.


I apologize in advance.


(Also, while researching this, I found the journals here of a couple of guys
from the Horde Project that I used
to work on. Neat.)
