for the sake of posterity...

As part of the Giant Office Closet Cleanup, I’m going through some old notebooks looking for items of interest before tossing them. Most of it is pure ephemera – seminar notes and other stuff from gradual school life. The last one I looked at, however, had a date in it that seemed worth preserving:

10.24.98 -- Purchased MkLinux DR2.1 Reference release. Got to install on internal 500MB drive

That was kernel 2.0.something – and it’s probably worth mentioning that my notes indicate I screwed up the initial install after only a few minutes, to the point where I had to start over.
