ooh, i can attest that blockbuster (at least my local one) uses a (in this case) blue screen with cursor, like dos. i remember seeing that and being surprised that a blockbuster that's been around for only a couple years had such an old system, so i figured it meant all blockbusters use it. oy.

I see what you mean in that way. A friend of mine has a couple of teenage daughters who I get on with pretty well. I think we have a similar sense of humour and like a good wind up. But as far as music goes then I can work out what they'll like and what they won't. But not the other way round. As for going shopping with them, I found that incredible how they can get taken for a ride. They don't understand how they're being targetted for their money. I wouldn't call them pathetic though, because I can see they'll figure it out. A lot of people don't of course. It leaves their mum feeling a bit helpless.

I remember both Pong and Mork and Mindy from elementary school.

When I was in high school the only people who went near computers were nerds with pocket protectors.

My 18th birthday was half my lifetime ago - I just realized that the other day.

Yep, I'm old.

Our first computer had a harddisk.
And yes, 20 Megabyte was a lot of space!

(This weekend I had to buy a new harddisk since the other one crashed - one thing that hasn't changed. Anyway, a 40-Gigabyte harddisk, smaller in size than 2 CD jewelcases for 75 euros. A solid price, but not spectacularly low.)

C ya!

Heh, I didn't understand teenagers when I -was- a teenager,

My parents work in IT, so I was really lucky to witness the wonder of "Space Invaders" in all its 2-colour glory and graphics made of zeroes.

CD's were Certificates of Deposit - stuff financial people talked about

You wind up using lots of stupid sayings. My favorites of the moment are:

"No reason not to" and "working hard or hardly working?"

There's more, all from my Gramps, gotta think of some.

can anyone else remember bbc computers from the 80s



we had them at school. they had a 'turtle' that you could attach to them. You had to plot in co-ordinates and the turtle was supposed to draw out the path you were describing with a pen in it's bum



they also used the huge floppy discs that really were floppy.

We had 3 of the computers and 1 turtle at my school. We thought we were on the cutting edge of technology, and so sophisticated

I soooo wish I could find that funny.

We use something pretty similar at my work.
