The Things I Purchased

This is everything that I have purchased from since... it looks like 1999. See if you could spot my purchases trending upward when I hit dotcom pay-dirt in 2000 and hit investment bank pay-dirt in 2002. This is probably 90% of the books, DVDs, and video games I have consumed in the past 6 years, which really isn't that bad, considering. I had to munge the output from the order history webpage with a bit of Perl and some other tricks so that I could hide the order numbers and recipient names (no, I didn't buy Pat the Bunny for myself, or, unfortunately, the large-ass television). In the process I lost all the links to the item detail page for each individual item; when I get around to it I'll try to merge the links back, so you could easily figure out what something like V is.

  1. steve erickson fan, huh?

  2. Yeah, I am (except that Arc D'X is pretty unreadable). His name is included in those entries along with the book title because I had to buy them all from third parties via Amazon's used books dealy. His older stuff is more or less out of print.
