I think the polio one is now given as a liquid on a sugar cube?? I think you are referring to the scar left by TB jab?
The one that left my arm scared was the (BCG)TB. Not only that but it was agony for about a month. it also got really swollen and filled with puss to the size of about a golf ball. It burst one day when someone hit my arm at school.....what a mess!
I remember the sugar cubes, but Griff is right; the jab was for smallpox. The US never did a routine TB vaccine, though in the '70s a TB test was required to be issued a health card for working in a restaurant.
My goal for Progvember is to finish debugging and validating my integrated flow network. Once that is done, I can run my tests, draw conclusions and finish writing my dissertation, so I can graduate next year.
Actually the work will likely last into December, since I have to make a business trip to Indonesia. Oh well.

My wife has signed me up. Here's what I'll be doing....
1. Convert small room currently used for storing crap into an office.
2. Cut big hole in family room wall and install 3.5m wide french doors
4. Put new edging along driveway (120m of the stuff)
5. Gut and re-fit pantry
6. Build fecking great deck outside family room so you can walk through the shiny new french doors onto it
7. Reclad the front of the triple garage (the current cladding at one end was smashed when my daughter attempted to reverse her car through it rather than the garage door).
All this MUST be completed by 1 December when her sister comes to visit.

You mean like the project that's been lying stagnant (80% done) for three years?
Or finally restoring the databases that I haven't bothered to deal with for six months?
I also have about two years of data access code changes to merge from various projects.
Actually the first and third of those now rely on the second.
Or I could do some more reading-up on Java for Android. I bought an "in 24 hours" book on it more than a year ago and I'm on chapter two.
