I've been doing stuff on the web from before the time there was a "web", back when it was USENET and Archie and Veronica and WAIS and Gopher, along with telnet-ing to random IPs to find BBS's that had just been attached to this "internet" thing. But somehow (mainly through this terrible case of curiousity I have) I've been able to keep up to date on many of the developments in tech since then. I have fond memories of the old days. There was a culture of geeks online back then that has mostly died out. It was a grand time, and I'll never forget it. But living in the future is actually pretty awesome, and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

As a shout out to my former self:

This was generated with The Geek Code: online codec in English, French. There's a decoder there as well if you're curious what this is.

I affim my belief in the Oxford comma, two spaces after a stop, and the essential superiority of vi over emacs, although these days I use Visual Studio Code more often than not.
