... when you remember the days when a tennis match was just that, and not a match of screams, squeals and groans. I cant' believe that every time they hit the ball, they have to let go of an annoying loud sound. Sounds so stupid!

Imagine programmers doing that with every keystroke.

1. You have computer parts in your house older than 19.......that you bought new.

2. You have actually used an 8" floppy disk.

3. Your first modem was 300 BAUD.

4. You were a beta tester for Windows 3.1

And I qualify on all counts. Ouch.

You can remember words such as innovative being used in the same sentence as VME. Or was that a dream...

You know you are really old when...

About 20 years ago when I was hanging out with some fencers, they were complaining about this one woman who kept going "eep" when she struck - little did I/we know it would invade all sectors of sports. It is like they saw a martial arts movie and thought the 'kiai' sounded cool.

GrimJack: I say 'Kiai' a lot. Than again that might be, because I am taking Tae Kwon Do.
Things you hear the most in Tae Kwon Do are Challiat, Chunbi, kunia, and hamasakeda.

There was even a commercial spoofing the tennis players. They did things like push the button for the cross walk with a loud grunt, lift a beer, take a drink, and put it down with a grunt, etc. The commercials weren't on very long, which makes one wonder if they brought up a lot of negative comments/discussion regarding the practice in general. Of course, when you make that much money you don't care. If it is only a distraction for your opponent, and not a necessary part of your game, players will continue to do it to gain an edge as it is doubtful that it will ever be penalized.

you not only remember Radio Shack hobby electronic kits from Tandy but were annoyed when they were discontinued as it removed your cheap source of equipment. Later---

More like: what you used to do all night is now impossible to do at all.

Memory was referred to as "core" because iron core rings were used instead of semi-conductors.

19 too young what y'a mean IN My DAY i had grey hairs in the dozens by 19 not to mention joint pains and occasional memory loss (it was really hard to determine what was due to drink and what wasn't at times)

seriously my bodies falling apart on me and im 22 (going death, blind and dumb-memory's so bad i have lil books now that i write things like buy milk in before going to the supermarket)

lol id say mainly when you start shouting at everyone without meaning to or noticing (watch for the recoil in their faces) and when you believe you have earned the right to take out you bad days on people who dare be near you.

thoes and maybe not noticing that you read the first page of a thread and that noone will know what ur on about in 11+ pages time
