E-mail From the Past

In 2005, I guess I signed up for Forbes’ e-mail time capsule and sent myself a message. I just received it today.

Well it is 8 days until your 28th birthday. As I write this, Sabine is currently washing dishes, and you are getting ready to get a head start on working for the Bloggy Network.

You are currently engaged and living with Sabine in a small apartment in Ottawa. Your computer runs at 1.8 Ghz, and you only have half a gig of ram. Your hard drive is 250 gigs and 120 gigs. Crazy world we live in. Hope you get this.

I think the most amusing part is that I spent a fair bit of the message discussing computer specifications. It is amazing both personally and technologically how much things have changed in the last five years.

    Cool! The funny part is you described the computer I’m using now 🙂 although my monitor’s a little more up to date thanks to you! Enjoy your weekend…I think next week will be much better for you.
