Time-lapsed Blogography Day

BU at multiple data points

  • 22 years ago today, on November 11, 1993, I worked on my Weather merit badge and my science fair project, A Study in the Composition of Regional Surface Water. (It had no chance against current FCC CIO David Bray's project, which used computers to model the spread of oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico and won $3000).

  • 21 years ago today, on November 11, 1994, I had an optometrist appointment (with the same optometrist I use now) and then bought the computer game, Under a Killing Moon: A Tex Murphy Adventure. It had full-motion video and came on 4 CDs.

  • 20 years ago today, on November 11, 1995, it was Senior Band Day, and my mom came out on the football field. There was a thunderstorm after halftime, so we all went home early. I spent the evening printing scores for the Indiana University Music Competition on our HP LaserJet 4, which forced you to reinsert the paper back into the tray to print on two sides and jammed with more regularity than the meters in my compositions. I did not win the competition, probably because colleges hate tonality.

  • 16 years ago today, on November 11, 1999, I was at Philip's house, celebrating Kelley's birthday with Doobie, Kara, Shac, Nikki, Liz, and John Schurman. We watched a reality show called Greed and listened to Doobie being entertaining.
  • 14 years ago today, on November 11, 2001, I went to a bad senior trumpet recital at FSU and wrote a scathingly polite review.
