Definitions of Geek Antiquity

I can see already that this will probably be a series of more than one post…

You know you’ve been a geek a while when you find files like these lying around:

 -rw-r--r-- 1 tim users 16650 Apr 24 2001 .pinerc
D drwxr-xr-x 3 tim users   76 Aug 18 2003 .sawfish
  -rw------- 1 tim users  324 Jan 14 2003 .sawfishrc
D drwxr-xr-x 3 tim users   95 Apr 24 2001 .sawmill
  -rw-r--r-- 1 tim users 4419 Apr 24 2001 .sawmillrc

Just in case there’s any doubt: I used Pine from about 1995 to 2000, before I bypassed mutt in favour of Emacs and Gnus. Sawmill was the original name before Sawfish renamed itself; either way, I no longer use just a simple window-manager but the whole KDE environment.

A slight tidy-up is called for…
