Backup Archaeology

Nov 14th, 2009

In sorting through old CDs during a cleanout before a move, I discovered some old backups. The one from 2001 contained A-level coursework, and a ‘My Music’ folder of two albums. (Bless) The 2003 disc contained a txt file with the following:

TODAY I AM GOING TO EAT A PEACH. NOT A VERY BIG PEACH MIND YOU BUT A PEACH NONE THE LESS. TO BE FRANK I AM LYING, YOU MAY HAVE GUESSED THIS. I AM JUST STUCK AS TO WHAT TO WRITE AS MY PIECE OF CODE, SO I DECIDED TO MAKE SOME THING UP. DO NOT THINK I AM BAD FOR MAKING THINGS UP. I ONLY TOLD A LITTLE LIE, I COULD HAVE TOLD ONE MUCH BIGGER, LIKE I HAD A PET ALIEN OR WAS THE PRESIDENT OF A SMALL THIRD WORLD COUNTRY. INSTEAD I SAID I WOULD EAT A PEACH. IS THAT SO BAD.

I have no idea why I wrote that, or felt the need to back it up.

I’m tempted to rescue a few of the old website designs to show how this place has changed over the years.

  1. Sounds like it's in code; you should probably hold onto it in case it is necessary for the survival of the human race at some point ;).
