so now i feel like a really OLD fart. and stupid to boot!
40 yrs old and some days i can really feel it. but of
course, i'm not an expert or even a helper here yet.
......so maybe that makes my response moot.
...
tell you what. i'll just go back and sit in my corner.
maybe suck down an ensure and a geritol.
let's see what is on TCM, or maybe the history
channel..........

so if anybody wants to know what things were like
back in the day, just yell at the gray haired man in
the corner with his 8 tracks.
hell, i can remember when FM radio was a big thing.

oy.

is that my walker on the floor?

so now i feel like a really OLD fart.

Why? At this exact moment I'm 37/12. The first is physical age, the second mental, although my girlfriend keeps insisting it's more like 6 years old!

so if anybody wants to know what things were like back in the day, just yell at the gray haired man in the corner with his 8 tracks.

Don't forget those vynil circle-shaped things we used to call albums. Or VHS!

Hmmm - remember black and white TV? A world with no PCs (I used punch cards when I started to program)! FM radio? I remember AM! How about telephones that only came in black, and had rotary dials?

Whoops, I'm showing my age! :rofl: :rofl:

Bobbi_Flekman, I agree with you - age is a state of mind. I won't say I'm 12 mentally, but I think I'll be 25 forever (even though I'm somewhere north of 40) :whistle:

Now, if I could just remember where I put my teeth.... :rofl:

wow, not alone. PHEW!

and what i meant was i remember when FM came out, and was
only had by the under the dash add ons. when you got in a
car with one of those things, you remarked "you've got FM!!!"

yes, albums and 8 tracks. the first video games. and we went
outside to play, and a trojan was from troy, a virus kept you
out of school (you hoped), and you still fished with worms.

but i have to say that i do feel extremely fortunate to be the age
that i am. i have seen all the inventions of the past 30 years,
and have kept up with them, for the most part. what i am
jealous of is the ability for the younger generation to learn
all about computers at a very young age. my synapses are
starting to fire more slowly. i try to keep up , but seem to
fall a little more behind.

my wife would also say that my mental age is around 18, much
like a lot of you mentioning better halves.

oh yeah, i actually watched the first moon landing. even at 5,
i remember it.

Forty five.

Mental age variable from about 5 upwards.

When I was a kid all us local kids went round to the local Laundry 'cos they were rich and we could all watch their T.V. on a weekend.

Fantastic technological advances in my lifetime, but I do envy the young their easy grasp of it, I struggle sometimes.

What! FM's not cool any more?
Should I maybe upgrade to 8-track?

Oh Jeez...I had forgotten about the "Trash-80" :p

I was in VietNam when that thing came out; remember seeing it in a Radio Shack (I think it was Tandy back then) after I got out. If I remember right it had something like 4 kb (yep, 4 kilobytes) of RAM and the operating system was a dos program that Radio Shack dreamed up.

oh heck...I'll probably have flashbacks when I go to bed tonight

Thanks cnm for reminding me :rofl:

The OS was Basic - and the (not free) upgrade was to Microsoft Basic, considered a great advance. Variable names could have 2 letters in them instead of just one, and the display was no longer ALL CAPS.

I remember my first computer it was called an Abacus. They were the good old days back then. The biggest advancement has got to be matchsticks. I lost count how many blisters I got from rubbing 2 sticks together.
Seriously though I am 43 but at present feel 143, thank heavens for a decent walking stick.

Stick, did someone mention a stick? I remember back in the days; in boarding school, when Mr. Stick and I were close friends. He would greet me at least twice a week but the greetings were always painful but at least I left feeling enlightened.

Age is great and scary at the same time. What does it matter what age we are, but it sure is fun remembering the old PCs. Mine was a Spectrum 48K. It was leaps and bounds ahead of my friends, they only had Spectrum 32K's. How old am I 33/12. Gotta love the other half don't we, because who would want to live 24/7 with a 12 year old. LOL anyway. No offense intended to the 12 year olds.

Well, some of us don't have a choice...currently have a 12 year old daughter :p . It helps keep me young (while causing me to age rapidly at the same time :hmmm: )! I think it's great to see such a range of ages here though, as everybody brings different experience to the site.
