Very worried about you. The only way that happens is when you're at room temperature. Do you need a wellness check?

"Tack...tack...tack - damn, bad sector"

Trivia: my 5.25 floppy drives used to have an open/close lever instead of a push button.

Get off my lawn! My last resume is saved on an 8-inch floppy disk...single-sided, single density, a whopping 241K maximum space.....

My last name is Lovell. When I need to help someone with the spelling I used to say, “like the astronaut.” I rarely say that anymore, but if I happen to 98% of the time I get a blank stare.

Really you think remembering computer floppies makes you old?
Using this in college makes you old!



We don't need no stinking calculator

When I went to take the ham radio license test and a subsequent license upgrade test in the not-so-distant past, the instructions said that you could bring a calculator or slide rule for the exams. The proctors (who were way older than me) commented that they had never seen someone bring a slide rule to the test before. FWIW, I got a perfect score on both exams.....
