Thursday Special ~ The Original Computer


Put that HOT Coffee down


The Original Computer

Memory was something you lost with age

An application was for employment

A program was a TV show

A cursor used profanity

A keyboard was a piano

A web was a spider’s home

A virus was the flu

A CD was a bank account

A hard drive was a long trip on the road

A mouse pad was where a mouse lived

And if you had a 3 inch floppy – – – – –

You just hoped nobody ever found out!?!

Click if you must! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And a desktop was something cluttered with unpaid bills and family photos. Of course I clicked. This guy has quite a movement – he ought to be a belly dancer….

    Can’t click but can imagine – love the pic of the computer!
    And Wallpaper stuck to your walls!
    And a cache was usually stolen goods.
    And a download was…., well, never mind. ;^)

    @Nick – My desk is covered with receipts from my venture to the shops today. Now where is my keyboard????

    @Magpie – We have to leave somethings to the imagination! ๐Ÿ™„

    @Phil – Oops!

    @Eileen – Life was simple then!

    @WWW – Trust you! ๐Ÿ˜€

    My boss asked me to go downstairs yesterday and bring him the ‘mail book’ so he could see whether a particular parcel had been sent . . he was flabbergasted to learn it was actually on an excel spreadsheet! Some things never change!

    LOL…That’s hilarious, Grannymar. ๐Ÿ™‚ My favourite old-tech phrase is “Sneaker Net”. The youngsters can’t quite fathom carrying a 5 1/4 floppy from one computer to another. Do I really want to admit that I remember those days? ๐Ÿ™‚

    I suppose those 5ยผ floppies were heavier and more difficult to lose, unlike todayโ€™s laptops and DVDs! ๐Ÿ˜‰
