Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I should not have forgotten to mention that today, as part of our lunch extravaganza, Steve gave me some CDs of music, and that we had one of the first geeky conversations I've ever felt comfortable having. Perhaps this was because I participated equally and never felt in over my head. (We were discussing, among other things, the problem he recently had with sendmail and the problems I had recently installing NewsBruiser.)

Also, I got to see the "scary chemicals" box in his lab. I think some of that stuff is twice as old as I am. And something like a million times as deadly!
