Computer Quote  
This computer quote is teh love. ^^ My mom feels exactly like that almost every day...

Remember when...?

A computer was something on TV from a science fiction show. A window was something you hated to clean and RAM was the cousin of a goat...

Meg was the name of my girlfriend and gig was your middle finger upright. Now they all mean different things and that really mega bytes.

An application was for employment. A program was a TV show. A cursor used profanity. A keyboard was a piano.

Memory was something that you lost with age. A CD was a bank account. And if you had a 3 1/2" floppy you hoped that nobody found out.

Compress was something you did to the garbage not something you did to a file. And if you unzipped anything in public you'd be in jail for awhile.

Log on was adding wood to the fire. Hard drive was a long trip on the road. A mouse pad was where a mouse lived and a backup happened to your commode.

Cut you did with a pocket knife. Paste you did with glue. A web was a spider's home and a virus was the flu.

I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper and the memory in my head. I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash but when it happens they wish they were dead!

Nice. Time changes. I can't wrap my head around the fact my daughter won't know what old vinyl records are... or even tape cassettes. Aw, analog, makes me all nostalgic.

Heh. This reminds me of Abort, Retry, Ignore (the website, if you want to read it: http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article09-122), a parody of Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven lol
