Ruggers '85 vs. Hackers '07

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.

Enjoy...

Much hacking (Notice the walls have been painted, an Exit sign has been added but the mantel and light fixture are the same).
