Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
I did find the person who had dropped her ID cards. I emailed her Friday morning and we met up on campus. She brought me flowers to thank me. Isn't that sweet?
She's a sophomore, and I'm a senior, so I found myself giving her lots of advice that she didn't ask for, and even explaining open-source software, which for some reason I haven't done that often recently. Usually it's about once a month. When Leonard and I are talking with someone and he asks for an explanation, I usually take over. Also when someone asks how Leonard and I met.
