A thousand drafts


I wrote about reaching seven-thousand posts last Friday, so I figured it was worth checking another pointless milestone:

$ cd ./drafts
$ ls -1 | wc -l
==> 1023

I reached a thousand drafts at the same time, which is just silly. The oldest is from 2009, and just consists of:

Singapore’s best pies. Or at least, that was the aim. I ended up loearning [sic] about Travan tape drives.

I have no idea how I related the two. But it reminded me that I wanted to get an old Travan drive for my 486 tower, and by sheer chance I got one on eBay for $30. That’ll be a pointless topic for a future post!
