A Poem For Computer Users Over 30

Recommended Posts

I decided on a nice little poem... ;) hehehe
Its a good poem!
A Poem For Computer Users Over 30

A computer was something on TV
From a science fiction show of note.
A window was something you hated to clean
And ram was the cousin of a goat.

Meg was the name of my girlfriend
And gig was a job for the nights.
Now they all mean different things
And that really mega bytes!

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,
And if you had a 3-in. floppy
You hoped nobody found out.

Compress was something you did to the 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 the 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.

I wonder if there is more like this. ;)

I'm old enough that I remember a life before computers/Internet was thoroughly pervasive. Kids growing up today will probably never crack a real encyclopedia while I remember get out the old Funk & Wagnalls set to look up information for school projects.

I remember having no computer/internet around either. There were a couple of consoles like master system kicking around back as far as I can remember. I grew up with the first real console wars.

The first real console wars ruled because back then it was more about the games rather than the money you know =] Mario vs Sonic! Now it's let's see what retarded games can be most well advertised for Sony's playstation

I've had a computer since it was common to turn it on and see "A:\>" and think "huh?, back when a 640k RAM test could be watched. My dad has used computers since an HD cost $10,000 and was the size of a fridge and card sorters were cool.

The oldest console wars I can remember was NES vs. Sega Genesis. Those 80's commercials were hilarious.
