Day 6.295: In the last 13 years...

It was my last day after 13 years working for the same company today.

13 years ago:
  • There was no Blogger or WordPress.
  • I wasn't a parent.
  • Home dial-up internet access was a luxury item.
  • I had never used Google to search for something (remember AltaVista?)
  • Mark Zuckerberg hadn't even gone to college never mind started Facebook.
  • I had never had a mobile phone.
  • It wasn't too embarrassing to describe the features introduced in ISO 14882:1998 as "new C++" (I was still hearing this less than 5 years ago though!)
  • I'd never worn a cleanroom suit.

It's been a long journey, we've been through a lot together, but it has come to an end.

  1. Very sad that you've gone, but the new job sounds like a great opportunity and I think you'll all love living in Maine.
