Life Before The Computer

Recommended Posts

Life Before the Computer - an application was for employment; a program was a TV show; a cursor used profanity; a keyboard was a piano; memory was something that you lost with age; a CD was a bank account; if you had a 31/4 inch floppy, you hoped nobody found out!

Compress was something you did to garbage

Not something you did to a file

And if you unzipped anything in public

You'd be in jail for awhile!

Log on was adding wood to a fire

Hard drive was a long trip on the road

A mouse pad was where a mouse lived

And a backup happened to your commode!

Cut - you did with a pocket knife

Paste you did with glue

A web was a spider's home

And a virus was the flu!

I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper

And the memory in my head

I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash

But when it happens they wish they were dead!
