Michael's blog about teaching, hardware, software and the things inbetween

It was twenty years ago tonight...

More looking through backups (what else would you want to do when it's -8 degrees outside?)... and another pictures folder, this time from 1998!

Back then, Linux was still a (rather) new and hot thing (and without systemd!). So, our Unix user group at Siegen Uni organised some events to gain more publicity for it. Our so-called "Linux Meetings" attracted up to 500 visitors over two days on a weekend.

So, here's a picture of yours truly from Linux Meeting 1998 in Siegen and some other impressions from twenty years ago... the shirt reads "Instant programmer... just add coffee", btw.
