> today and felt
> it was worth sharing!
> Remember when…
> A computer was something on TV
> From a science fiction show.
> A window was something you hated to clean,
> And ram was the cousin of a goat.
> Meg was the name of a girl,
> And gig was your middle finger upright.
> Now they all mean different things,
> And that really meg a 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 .5” 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 a while.
> Log 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 scissors,
> Paste you did with glue,
> A web was a spider’s home,
> 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 wished they were dead!
> But Now
> Home is where you hang your @
> The e-mail of the species is deadlier than the mail.
> A journey of a thousand sites begins with a single clic.
> You can’t teach a new mouse old clicks.
> C:/ is the root of old directories.
> Pentium wise; pen and paper foolish.
> The modem is the message.
> Too many clicks spoil the browse.
> The geek shall inherit the earth.
> Don’t bite off more than you can view.
> Fax is stranger than fiction.
> What boots up must come down.
> Windows will never cease.
> In Gates we trust.
> Virtual reality is its own reward.
> There’s no place like http://www.home.com
> And finally
> Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day;
> Teach him to use the Net and he won’t bother you for
> Hope you enjoyed it,
> Vicky Saumell
