    Lol yes very true! :D

    I love my career just sometimes the stress is just so high at times but I really love it though :D

    Yes very very true what you say! Sometimes the youth just get rushed into a career and they end being so depressed with life and all that.

    I am glad I got out of IT - I was not so happy there much happier in industrial engineering! :D

    I am glad you love grapes! XD but I hope I am not the sour kind of grape that nobody loves and wants to avoid! xD

    I want to make people smile not cry lol :)

    Thank you for your kind words! :D

    in my day only comedians we're that snarky. Comedians would exploit anything to get the laugh.
    Funny how humor changes across the decades.

    At our ages, most of us won't vividly remember anything. ;)

    This thread is about "your day" which wasn't all that long ago, but nobody's perspective is wrong (except for @Mikestony , but he's wrong on so many levels, we gave up :p ;) )

    I remember getting our first cordless phone. What a fantastic device! Instead of being chained within 3 feet of the phone by the cord you could now walk as far as 15 or maybe even 20 feet away from the phone base. Oh the freedom that provided!!

    We didn't record live TV for 20+ years until VHS arrived and prices dropped enough that we could Rent a VHS Machine!


    If you missed a program there were very few re-runs.
    I guess most people then had regular work and home lives and fitted the TV schedules into tthem.

    Also outside of the capital city of Dublin on the east coast which had coverage of UK TV Channels, on the south coast we just had RTE 1, and later RTE 2.

    The national newspapers had listings for the UK channels, and for years I didn't know what M*A*S*H was like.

    My first Tandy had an 8086 chip with a math coprocesser. 512k or RAM upgradable to 640k. I did have a 720k 3 1/2 inch floppy, which was cool though.

    My first PC was similar, though I don't remember exactly which Atari it was. I remember typing a million (OK, probably a couple hundred) lines of code to make a waving American flag show up on my TV. :D My post above was my first Tandy. :p

    Oh man yes. Been there and done that... and saved it so that I could show off to my friends lol
    My cousin's husband would stay up half the night.. or more.. and play star raiders. It was quite a bit of game for it's time.
    I got more mileage out of the game than the computer.
    Felt so burned that I didn't buy another PC until I bought a 386/20 running Dos 3.11A a few years later.

    We did not had too much televison, though we had radio, frequency modelator, and a.m. radio only local stations, we thought only on how small that seem and find it much different no matter what though. We pulled out chairs, and become kind with one another.

    Futurama was excellent.
    The Simspons did not seem so "over rated"
    and Family guy look like a two year old did the drawings.
