My life in words and images; a work in progress.

I Just Don't Know...

Systems Adminstrator's Blogs Are Boring.

This one, I'm sure, is no exception. Posts are often written at the end of a long working day; I'm frequently confused, drunk and alone.

You Kids Have It Easy

"You kids have it easy, I had to wind my own bobbins, and if I mispunched a card, the loom was liable to throw a shuttle right through the head of a nearby textile worker."


"Cards? Luxury! I was at the smithy 18 hours a day forging gears for my analytical engine, Ada working her fingers to the bone assembling them on shafts. I used to dream of the day when I would finally get it all put together so that I could finally play 'Wumpus'."


"We used to dream of gears and shafts. All we had was some grooves dug in the sand and a bag full of pebbles, IF WE WERE LUCKY!"
