Mistyped the date as 4/3005 tonight and was reminded of this nice tidbit from Microserfs, known far and wide for its tidbits:
"...sometimes you accidentally input an extra digit into the year: i.e., 19993 and you add 18,000 years on to now, and you realize that the year 19993 will one day exist and that time is a scary thing, indeed."
But searching for that text led me to an early, early blog, starts in September 1996, when the earth's curst was still molten and predating tilde carl, which for different reasons I revisted this weekend. Another form of time travel.
Who is going to write this history? Maybe it should be me. The weight of all those words, especially the ones like Carl's, will be crushing. Or maybe it is impossible, there is too much, only the NSA could do it.Posted by dbrown at April 25, 2005 10:51 PM
