Note: Flickr recently went through a massive server transition, and portions of the service are still being worked on. Among the problems is that mosaic thumbnails on Collections are not visible, which means my primary page here for showing groupings by year are missing those thumbnails. The links do work—only the thumbnails are missing, so you can still navigate into a year to view those photos.
Some VERY old, very small, very poor-quality GIF files taken by an equally old/small/poor-quality digital camera—the first digital camera I ever used.
Disney World was celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and chose to decorate Cinderella's Castle like a birthday cake.
Biometric scanner turnstile
The only reason I even came to the park on this day was because my brother, at the time, was working for a company who was bidding to upgrade Disney's biometric finger scanners. Rather than fly someone down to buy a pass and do some research, my brother suggested I do it for them since I lived in Orlando.
My brother's company reimbursed me for the pass and since it was, of course, in my name, I got to keep it. This was even a year-round, 365-day pass.
What is now called Innoventions at Epcot was known as CommuniCore back then. In one of the Communicore pavilions, Apple had a section set up. This particular time, they were showing off some concept equipment. This was some sort of CD multimedia device.
What looked like an awesome concept computer kind of looks like a piece of junk today.
WebTV-type service was only about a year old at this time, and it shows. I really don't think my 1997-era web site looked all that bad, but this kiosk made it look like utter crap.
Rondò Veneziano performs fantastic music. Sort of pop meets classical. I was lucky to get to hear a performance by a small troupe of members.
They always perform with these classical period costumes. They're great!
