...you played games which had no *save*. Dying typically meant more than a hour of repetitive grind. :)

Has anyone mentioned the classics? Your friends are stating to look old, but not you. And

"May I help you __Sir__"

I am never getting that old. Never.

I am not an expert on this subject, but I always thought that it takes two or more for real sex. You might be the only willing person in this scenario.

You had a Dial Phone? Trying to put operators out of work?

You remember when you picked up the phone and said "Sally, connect me to my dad at the bank please" -- party lines, saying goodnight to your girlfriend and 5 people hang up before you do.

You remember getting up from the couch and turning a knob to change the TV Channel.

Or you remember never changing the channel because there was only one channel in your town.

You know what it means to 'shoot your cuffs'

Everybody knows that you shoot your cuffs before you slick your jelly roll.


hmmmm .... that does sound a little odd when you say it.

you know that are two sizes of floppies

There were 8" floppies too! (In all fairness I don't really remember them) I think the 5 1/4" were double sided by the era of the souped-up Apple IIe (but you still had to flip em).

Time to do some cleaning dude. Actually the 8 inch and 5 1/4 were called floppies. The 3.5 inch version was sometimes a floppy and sometimes not. I think Apple wanted to distance its hard case floppy from the others and emphasize the perceived superiority of their product so tried to create a separate product group for it. Today it would be the iFloppy. There were also 3 inch and at least one in the 2 inch category which were attempts to lock in people to one specific vendor. Today you'll have to contact almostbob to find one.

don't know what apple wanted but I never heard or read of the 3.5 being any thing but a 3.5 floppy to be read by a floppy drive,I never ran into 8 inch floppies guess at that time I was busy playing race car driver. Later---
