Life Before the Computer...

Memory was something you lost with age,

An application was for employment,

A programme was a show on TV,

A cursor was someone who swears a lot,

A keyboard was a piano,

A web was a spiders home,

A virus was the flu, (manflu that is)

A hard drive was a long trip down the motorway,

A mouse pad was where a mouse lived,

And if you had a 3-inch floppy .....

well you just hoped and prayed no b*****d found out!

Ahhhh the good old days...except for the 3 1/2 inch floppy!!!

Here are some more:

Laptop - Where grandchildren sit.
Server - A person at a restaurant.
RAM - What sometimes happen to our cars when out of control.

Thanks for the memories Mike.
