Remember when....

Author Unknown

Remember when........

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

Meg was the name of your girlfriend
And gig was your middle finger upright
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 you lost with age
A CD was a bank account
And if you had a 3 1/2 inch floppy,
You hoped nobody found out.

Compress was something you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public,
You'd be in jail for a while.

Log on was adding wood to the pile,
Hard drive was a long trip on the road.
A mouse pad was a hole in the wall,
And 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'd rather stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head...
Nobody's been killed in a computer crash,
They just wish they were dead.
