    Just Ten Years Ago!!!

    Before the computer age,

    An APPLICATION was for employment.

    A PROGRAMME was a television show.

    WINDOWS were something you hated to clean

    A KEYBOARD was a piano.

    MEMORY was something you lost with age.

    A CD was a bank account.

    COMPRESS was something you did to garbage.

    LOG ON was adding wood to a fire.

    A HARD DRIVE was a long trip on the road.

    A MOUSE PAD was where a mouse lived.

    CUT you did with scissors.

    PASTE you did with glue.

    A WEB was a spider's home.

    And a VIRUS was a flu !!!!!

    Had similar posted on my BBS in 96, and at that time it had seemed PC's had been around forever..
    Infact the IBM/Clone have been around since 1981, and off the shelf Personal Computers have been around since the mid to late seventies, in my neck of the woods I can point to the trash 80's and Apple II's of 1977/8..

    Bloody hell BC was trying to be funny.. and he forgot the punch lines..

    Yahoo was what you screamed when you won the Lottery
    And A Floppy was not something you mentioned in Public..especialy a 3 and a half inch one.. 10 inch and you were braging..
    ZIP you used to keep the floppy hidden
    Microsoft also was something you didnt mention in public (You still Dont)
    Nix you only got when you shaved
    Penguins were only found in the southern regions and Antarctica
    Scan is what you did to the horizion
    Burning was reserved to old paper, wood and cigs
    Bandwidth was a very fat singing group
    and Megahertz was the result of a Hammer hitting your thumb
    A Jump drive was a method of starting a Car
    RAM are Boy sheep
    ROM was misspelt Room
    Clocks gave you the time
    Slackware was loose fitting cloths
    Software ..womens unmentionables
    HArdware.. hammers, saws, timber (yeh still on the F... Renno)
    Search was for lost childeren
    A TUX is what you wore to a formal occasion
    A Monitor was snotty smart arse in a hallway at school
    a Byte is what was taken out of apples..not put in them
    a Bit a part of a jig-saw puzzel
    A Worm what was found in the apple after the byte

    Interupt was what you did to get into a conversation
    Probe was the uncomfortable thing a Doctor did when you were ill
