I Shall Call Him “Mini Me”

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

I was going through some old files the other day and I came across this picture of Yours Truly at about age 6. Rather than keep it to myself, I thought I should share the embarrassment with everyone:

Mini Me

I appear to be using Paintworks on a really early Apple. This was in 1987, so judging by the form factor of the case in profile, it seems to be an Apple IIgs. I actually remember when this picture was taken: I was using the paint bucket tool to color in a letter “E”, but I accidentally colored it the same color as the background. In vain, I tried to color it back by clicking the paint bucket where I thought the “E” had been, but of course this did not work. It’s not much of a memory, but it was over 20 years ago. Even then I was fascinated by computers, and to this day I still like playing with paint programs.

Mom is in Escrow
