It appears that the Internet Tetris Gods (see YouTube video above) have once again graced me with their benevolent presence; this time in the form of lost source code:
Searching the Internet Wayback Machine for one of my old expired domains revealed a strange little Easter Egg from exactly this day, October 13th, almost 20 years ago... Somehow I let a code listing slip through just long enough for it to be archived. Damn.
Nothing ever truly gets deleted. Tis the nature of the cloud...
Sorrry about your hard drive crashes. I've still got stuff I downloaded / created 20 years ago backed up, most of it is crap though.
