Life Before the Computer

Once upon a time...

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.
If you had a 3 1/2 inch floppy You hoped nobody found out.
Compress was something you did to garbage.
If you unzipped anything in public, it was jail for a while.
Log on was adding wood to a fire.
A hard drive was a long trip on the road.
A mouse was an animal and a mouse pad was where the mouse lived.
A backup happened to your loo.
Cut was something you did with a  knife.
Paste was something 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!
