Flashback Friday: Is that a Computer?

It's  hard to think how much computers have changed over the past decade or so, but I had the newest and bestest that the State government could provide. Kind of laughable now, isn't it.

The building I am in was just renovated back in 2000 and that barren, cold room warmed up quite a bit in the coming months. We soon brought in quite a few incandescent lamps and never turned those ceiling florescents on again during the 10 years I worked there.  The drapes and paintings came a bit later as well as the few pieces of upholstered furniture.

One of the nicest things about this office, in addition to the view of the State House out the window with the flag, was that all the windows opened. As spring came, we loved having fresh air come in though we soon learned to keep papers on those deep window sills weighted down.

But this was in December 2000, just a few days until the start of the 2001 General Assembly in January. It was a time of promise both professionally and personally for me. I was right...there were many good things ahead.
