Mink Machine

Sweet sixteen

Recently Mink Machine turned sixteen years old. In a way it doesn’t feel like a long time, but when one considers that 1994 saw the death of Cobain and the inauguration of Nelson Mandela, it’s really been a long road.

It’s also quite fitting that this is entry number 300 of this blog. 300 is a big number, even when excluding Spartans. I would never have thought of writing all this stuff sixteen years ago. Or maybe I did, come to think of it, but that is another story. And as all evil warlords I do have a masterplan for the site, including a much needed engine replacement. I feel the need for engine grease, hardhats and PHP coding.

Thanks all for tuning in. Grab a cup of coffee and have a great day!
