Ruggers '85 vs. Hackers '07
By barton808 on Jun 28, 2007
As I mentioned in my Haggis flashbacks entry last week, I had some pretty freaky deja vu moments while attending Debconf7 at Edinburgh University.
On arriving home I dug out my photo album from my '85-'86 year at Edinburgh and have paired some of those pictures with ones I took last week, 21 years later.
Teviot Hall dining room -- 1986
Rugby Club's Burns night supper
Teviot Hall dining room -- 2007
DebCon7 hackers lounge #1 (same lights but the pictures above the mantel are gone and the walls are now red).
Teviot Hall dining room -- South West Corner -- 1986
A toast to the Haggis
Teviot Hall dining room -- South West Corner -- 2007
Much hacking (Notice the walls have been painted, an Exit sign has been added but the mantel and light fixture are the same).
