Bye, bye Waldemar Thranes gate 98

Posted just now by Hans S. Tømmerholt on one of Opera’s internal lists and shared here publicly with permission:


As we approach zero hour, with half an hour to go before the network goes down: Thank you for the winding corridors, where many a summer intern got lost and was never seen again. Thank you for the awesome location, right next to everything, ever. Thank you for a whole lot of charm, if not a whole lot of aesthetics. Thank you, so very much, for the awesome memories. So many conversations etched imperceptibly into these walls, so many footsteps recorded by these floors. History made physical. Browser history, web standards history, personal history, it’s all right here.

But screw you for the dammed ventilation system.

Raises virtual glass in virtual salute.
