It was also surprising to me that I didn't get on Facebook till October of 2006 (which is when I was finally able to get a UC alumni email address). Facebook was still private back then, requiring you to have email addresses of the network (e.g. the school or company) you were a part of. Of course, they opened to the public a month later . . .
In any case, I haven't done my traditional New Year's/resolutions post. To recap my 2011 resolutions:
- Not driving for a month - failed at this one. The first excuse would be that my bike was stolen. On the other hand, I did ride the McCarran loop on the 30 pound bike I got when I was 13 or so, and rode the single-speed to work.
- Writing at least twice a month to my livejournal and at least once a month to Yelp - I made it about half the year (if you ignore the stumble in March) as can be seen in the calendar view. I did better with Yelp - looks like I had 30 reviews, though again, no reviews for March.
- get a new laptop - I just bought a Lenovo X100e to act as a secondary machine, but I need to replace my 5 year old Dell 700m that tends to overheat and shut down randomly now - Never did buy another machine. I'm waiting on Ivy Bridge, and will probably pay the premium for an Ultrabook
