Yah it was us-30, and 49 is the bypass that runs by it. Geez live there
18 years and cant remember the name of major highways. Only thing we
ever really bought from the place was a few 9gb harddrives and memory
for a cyrix 166mhz that I gave a friend. Still interested to wander
around and look at what they had.

I left purdue when the place was moving. The Computer science labs had
tons and tons of ultra 5s in them that we did our java development on,
and the other labs had Pentium 3 500 and flat panel monitors that we
used visual J++ on.
Funny how as a computer science major there I never touched C or C++
only java... guess that's why I left before finishing up my degree. Oh
well once my girlfriend finished college she gets to take over the role
of sugar daddy then I can go back to college :)
