    the good ol' days


    Remember when a computer was something on TV, from a
    science fiction show. A window was something you hated
    to clean, and ram was the cousin of a goat. Meg was
    the name of a girlfriend, and gig was when a band played
    at night. Now they all mean different things, and that
    really mega bytes.

    An application was for employment and a program was a
    TV show. A cursor used profanity and a keyboard was
    a piano. 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 a while.

    Memory was something that you lost with age. A CD was
    a bank account. A floppy disk was something terribly
    wrong in yourback. Log was adding wood to the fire,
    hard drive was a long trip on the road. A mouse pad
    was where a mouse lived, and backup happened to your
    commode. Cut you did with a pocket knife and 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!

    and here's a good tongue twister I found also:
    I slit the sheet, the sheet I slit, and on the slitted sheet I sit.
