A Technical Packrat

My name is Vince and I'm a technical packrat.  ( Hello Vince.... )

I have notes from the first Dallas .Net User Group meeting in 2001 and the first Microsoft MSDN meetings in Dallas around 1998.  I have an ascii chart in my wallet but soon to be on my phone.  I have books related to project management in the late 80's.  I still have 8086 assembly and SQL 6.5 books.

    Why?  I'm a technical packrat.

After 20 years of development, I actually know who I am and what I want to focus on.  Technology moves like a train around mountains, but it still moves forward.  Some good advise I've heard is that if we don't read it in 3 months, throw it out.  It feels good to throw away obsolete things that no one needs.  A trip to the local Goodwill will be a relief.

What's in your wallet?

-Vince
