I thought I might do a re-post of some articles from the past as reminders of the differences in life between then and now. I decided to post these after I discovered drafts I thought were lost from the server crash that happened a year ago last Saturday. It was a particularly bad crash that came from a power surge in the building. It managed to take out my blog, but worse yet, it crashed the server containing the backups of my articles. It was interesting to run across these drafts and see the difference in attitude manifested in them –compared to now. So, for the next few days, we’ll look backwards.
