oh my god!

oh man. talk about old skool. I don't know what caused me to think of it, but I went playing around in my afs space and found what is quite possibly some of the oldest surviving C code I have written, dating back to March 10, 1994. That was towards the end of my freshman year in high school. It's godawful. But hilarious. If it were a 232 program that I were grading, I think I would have to take off 10 to 15 out of 25 style points. But it's all good. Also found some code from April of 1994 that I wrote for an algebra class. So I first started learning C in fall of 1993, so this is definitely early stuff. I don't think I'll find any earlier C code. I know I've got older code in other languages, but it would all be at home somewhere. I should poke around over break.

Also, while poking around in old afs archives, I was reminded of the days when pete.enemy.org pointed at my machine. Well, turns out, it still does! pete.enemy.org still points at 129.74.136.209 which used to be rijks-1a.student.nd.edu. Of course it's now res80208.student.nd.edu so someone else now responds to pete.enemy.org but it's fun to know the name still exists. I wonder if I could still find the irc servers where the enemy.org people used to hang out. But I'll avoid doing that tonight...

man, I wish I'd had the log back then. Then I'd have a much easier time remembering what the hell I was doing... but at least the code survives.
