Again with the cleaning up...

While packing up the wine, I found the last case of Cockburns port that my Dad had bought at some point in the 1970s (I think). He married my Mom in 1967 and bought 50 bottles of '67 port to celebrate; they still drink a bottle on their anniversary every year. I still have eight of his bottles in my collection (that is, I'm looking after them for him), but I finally threw out the original packaging for them yesterday; the bottles are weeping and the cardboard is sticky, smelly, and probably unhygienic. I can only hope that the wine is OK at this point, but to be honest it's probably been going downhill for at least a decade at this point.

Today, I decided to throw out all of my floppy disks (well, at least the 3.5" ones) save for two marked IMPORTANT FILES 1991 on them. (God knows what's on those...)

Here's proof of my open source awesomeness circa 1998: I set up many a Linux box using this very disk. Rad!
