Dinosaurs I’ve known and loved

  1. I recall that first generation printer that had the guide holes on either side of the paper. The ones that self folded as they printed out in one long continuous spool. The sound it made drove me nuts.

    I actually have my old Walkman in a tub upstairs where all the old tech ends up. To later get ripped asunder and used in art. Not the worst fate awaiting outdated technology. Better than a landfill.

    1. I remember the big flat blue binders that held the printouts and reports. (At least, they were blue where I worked.) And the fact that only a few operators knew what was in the computer. The rest of us had to wait for our unwieldy state-of-the-art accordion-folded printouts to get our info.

  2. I miss my calculator watch, and I got so much pleasure form my Walkman! I too am annoyed by people carrying on personal conversations in my presence. I have to admit, though, that those “Bluetooth” thingys might provide excellent cover for people, like me, who have a tendency to talk to themselves! 😀

    1. My son uses a Bluetooth thingy. Makes him looks like a secret agent or something. He doesn’t talk near other people though, maybe because he’s heard me complain so much about how weird it looks. Yes, it would be great cover if you already talk to yourself; I’d want to cover for that too!

... and that's my two cents
