A trip down memory lane...

The other day, colleagues at the water fountain (virtually anyway, it was probably on the way back to the office from lunch) were reminiscing about CS classes back in school.

Craning my neck last evening at one point from what I was doing at my computer, I noticed that I've got precious few books left. I've kept these because they may still have relevance (or maybe not in some cases like Numerical Recipes in C and the other Algorithms book).

Still, it's hard to throw away books that cost me $50 or better 30 years ago because that was a veritable fortune in the day.

Douce France, ...

...pays de mon enfance,
Bercée de tendre insouciance,
Je t'ai gardée dans mon cœur !

Charles Trenet... moi (bien évidemment).
