Now the desktop I had when I first started posting here? I’m pretty sure its ram was still measured in megabytes. It had a floppy drive, a mouse with a track ball and only left/right click buttons. And usb sticks today have hundreds of times more hard drive space than that thing had.
I have a USB stick on my desk right now smaller than my index finger with almost 8x the capacity of my first computer. The desktop I am using right now is barely any heavier than my first laptop.

I've been on interference so long I remember when Axver's desktop was heavy as a truck.

On a slightly related note, this scene from "Friends" is pretty funny today!

I used to hear that part as "heavy as a church" for the longest time. Not sure what happened to me there exactly.

I don't have a smartphone, either. People laugh at my little "dumb" phone, but at least I'm not constantly looking at it, because there's nothing to see!

So after not having been here on a desktop in so long it wasn't even saved in my bookmarks, what are you talking about it's all about that blue. This place isn't blue anymore.

You can change it back if you'd like.

I happen to prefer it *not* be blue because all of my work browsing, but uh, yeah, some people like to LIVE IN THE PAST. #judging

not counting the BAWs of course since they were already married when they signed up, you guys must be the only one that actually made it work.

the two "interflings" that i was in certainly didn't

This is good to know, I’m totally going to go live in the past then. That background with all the album covers kind of looks past-y anyway though, like one of those geocities sites that used to still exist when I originally joined this site.

Yeah, and to me it looks like way more of a giveaway at work.

The blue I could pass off as any sort of forum as long as nobody looks closely, possibly even one with some sort of relevance to my work (I do occasionally peruse railway forums for legitimate work reasons). But the tiled album covers? Nope.

Of course now I have a private office with a computer screen that's not visible from the doorway, so I can even cover shows for U2gigs at work without any weird questions.

I think there might be one or two older relationships still going as well? Like, among Lemonade Stand people who are essentially before my time and don't post any more (I didn't really use this side of the forum until 2008, until then I was mainly in EYKIW and the tour forums).

But yeah, well done to Trashley for actually working out. I got over five years out of my one, most of those good, but that ended a few years ago.

I can think of two relationships that have worked, one long term with a couple of kids, and another one newer, but married now!
