Memories, Nostalgia


Hi. There has not been too much nostalgia posting here lately (well actually not much at all, so there). Maybe last June? But who cares if I feel like dipping into my tech past, it’s there. It’s part of my journey. And it’s my blog, my domain. Farther back, maybe a year ago, I recanted […]
