perhaps I am getting senile

[ #7887 ]
I could swear I posted a comment here that mentioned that I had had 24 years of paid computer industry experience, in response to someone else's journal noting an interview with someone else having more experience. And then there was a followup that said something like "isn't it crazy when someone has more experience than years you've been alive?"

Did I just imagine all that?

Or is there a way to delete entire threads from the journal?

Or is the indexing here messed up?

Did anyone else read that? Can anyone else find it for me? I've tried looking historically through my comments, and a few well-chosen keywords in searches. Weird.

  • It appears that that entry was deleted. If someone chooses to delete an entry, all associated comments are trashed.

    I can't remember who posted the original entry now, but I just checked about 20 journals manually and couldn't find it. The search engine is not very helpful.

    • It was me, jdavidb reminded me that it was something that might bite me in the ass in the future :)
      • I was also the one who made the smart-alek remark about someone having as many years of experience as I (and gav) have been alive. You can smack me for that if we ever meet in person, merlyn, perhaps at a conference next year. :)

        • The problem is that I thought it was a good funny remark, and wanted to reference it in the post someone recently made in having reached their 24th birthday.

          Otherwise, I wouldn't have even looked for it!
