As I clean up and sort through the lower reaches of Camp Borepatch, I find long lost wonders. One was some Kodak slide carousels. A couple were slides taken by my late Father-in-Law; the ex will be wanting these, no doubt. One was slides taken by me no doubt on a vacation around 1990 or so - I posted some of these here, and these are very likely of the same vintage.
But one was slides. As in, Presentation Slides. On Network Security. Circa 1994-1995.
I'm trying to remember when I had these made and for which venue, but two decades are somewhat thwarting my memory.
To add to the feeling of "old fartness", it seems that the crazy hipsters use the term "slidemanship" for something out of Mario Kart. Back In The Day it was the process of establishing dominance over your audience by first establishing dominance over your projectionist. Somewhere I have a hilarious writeup about that, which involves backwards slides, slides that are two pieces of film stuck together with wax that slide apart and de-focus when the heat of the lamp melts it, obscure references in Cyrillic typefonts ("Russian? No, no - Bulgarian, old chap!").
Mario Cart, indeed. Get offa my lawn, punks.
