Heading Out There

I desperately need to get out there and take some pictures. But I recently found this very very old photograph on Echo. We’re doing a big clean-up and consolidation of our machines, and I’ve been getting rid of old websites that people left behind as they moved on down the information superhighway.

This is a picture taken soon after Echo first started, so I’m guessing it’s around 1990. That’s a MAC SE on the right. I still have that. I also still have the plastic rat and Godzilla that can be seen in this shot. Those are modems on the left, sitting on red shelves. They must have been 1200 and 2400 baud!!

I wish it were more hi-res, but what are you going to do? Hopefully I will have some great shots when I get back. Although I suspect it’s most crazed football fans out there, and everyone else is in hiding.
