Good grief, I feel old... Looking through the cupboards in the study, I found an old disk box, with a load of stuff of mine from back in the day. For starters, I have a pirate copy of Prince of Persia, spanned across two 5.25" floppy disks, from 1990... I got it for my birthday, along with a computerised planetarium thing (star charts, comet and eclipse information, etc.). All this is now about 13 years old, but I still remember it vividly. It's also got a couple of disks with "Pranks 1 & 2", which were silly little programs I wrote in gwbasic when I was very little. I doubt the data is still on them - they've probably demagnetised by now or something, and if the data still existed I'd have no idea how to get at it, but still, it's fun to think about....

But yes, feeling quite old right now - it's funny, but on several occasions lately, I've forgotten how old I am... I kept wondering whether I was 20, 21 or 22... The confusion passes within a few seconds, but still, it's a bit weird. Whatever my age though, I'm constantly reminded that I'm a lot older than some people. No names mentioned - nobody at home or anything. But still, there are people who remind me how much older than them I am frequently, it's rather depressing. Just a certain mentality or something, I guess...

Anyhow, as for me personally, I'm feeling a lot better. Am probably still contagious, I wouldn't know, but there's been no sign of fever or vomit for ages now, so I think I'm sorted. I'd quite like to be able to get back to uni tomorrow, get back into doing work and stuff, I've got catching up to be doing. But only if the rest of my family are okay - today I've been playing nurse a bit, getting people drinks, blankets, helping to carry them around... But if they're better tomorrow, then I'll probably be off.

Anyhow, time for some breakfast (yes, my sleep pattern is broken)
