Dreaming with My Eyes Open
Monday, August 23, 2004

I am deeply saddened today, I have logged off of some of my own servers... for good. It deeply saddens me. I didn't realize it would have this much of an effect, but it does. Over two years I have grown and developed on these servers.

But now I log off of them for the last time.

They are as a child who I will no longer see. I must say goodbye. It sounds silly. They are just computers. But when you've brought these computers up from childhood to full working systems it no longer feels like "just" a computer. There is nothing to do but copy some data and see if someday a portion of that servers data will give birth to a new system, or just die away.
