Feeling old


posted on 17th of march, 2010
You know, sometimes I read of the new generation people or meet them myself - people that had never seen a floppy disc. They ask: "What's that square on the Save button?"
I feel old. Ancient even)))

Audio tapes and VHS tapes are kind of gone, aren't they! :) We still tape things on a VHS tape, but I know a lot of people switched to Tivo and such.

I remember floppy disks--I even remember the larger floppies that went into A drives. :) Do you guys remember zip drives? I sold some old ones of those a few weeks ago on Amazon since we don't use those anymore. I have a lot of my old files still on floppy and had to buy a drive to plug into my laptop to use them. All my files since 2007 have been on CD though.

A repair guy at my workplace this week had a digital camera that used floppies instead of a memory card. I had never seen anything like that before. He wanted to put the floppy into one of our office computers to look at the photos, but sadly we didn't have one of those drives and my USB plug-in floppy drive was at home. :(

It was really interesting, though!

Doctors made house calls. Or were on call and would come back to their office at night.
Milkmen delivered milk and eggs and etc every day.

Gee! I remember when you could go to almost any market, test and buy replacement tubes for your black and white TV! WOW1
