Probably at home studying math, since I failed to make it during the year and had to have an exam in the summer in order to pass the year. Coincidentally it was also the year I really went into music and neglected my school work, hence failing math. Once I focused on it I passed it in my first try. Just had to learn to set my priorities straight. Next year was worse, but for other reasons.
At the time I was unaware of Code Project's existence, but I learned about it the next year. Joined a year or two later.
I remember that day well. I remember that the world had been a duller looking place. Flowers didn't smell as sweet. Food tasted like ash, then you joined CP and all of a sudden there were bluebirds everywhere. You couldn't move without cheery chappies singing zipedeedoodah. Cockney chimney sweeps discovered a hitherto unknown ability to dance on roof tops and congestion was eased in London when the nannies started to commute by umbrella instead of the more traditional London Underground.
