Desi's not like some GECIs who believe an Olivetti typewriter works better than the Personal Computer and they boast about it! I seem to be getting younger, and join the league of Y&A like johnleemk 18-going-on-17 in seeking knowledge abroad. If you can't join them terrestrially, join them mentally. Who would think YL Chong the journo not so longer ago was also putting in 6 A4 sheets into an Olivetti Leterra 32 (It has desiderata crafted on it -- wanna pay 20mil for IT?)and slipping five carbon papers in to pen a news story? Now we do it using a mouse -- luckily the cat is asleep with the doggie in the window! -- and a blardy screen that spoils my eyes, and the copies churned out by most junior reporters aren't any cleaner. Some copies I'd rather send them to the cleaners!
mGf primrose sent me a bloom recently; she "threw" it out of a silvery car onto my porch, and I was so nifty I caught it with my long hand outing the window! Surprisingly even for a fortnight of non-watering, Desi still finds the flower s-MILE-ling at Desi; so hear I share with thee!
> Life Before Computers
An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
And a keyboard was on a piano!
Memory was something that you lost with age
And a CD was a bank account
And if you had a corrupted disk
It would hurt when you found out!
Compress was what 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 a fire
A hard drive was a trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to the commode!
Cutting, you did with a pocket knife,
Pasting, you did with glue.
The Web was where a spider lived
And a virus was the flu!
DESI: Visit the garden @primroses.blogspot.com and see if the friendly hostess offers thee
a ride in her vanishing red car -- I know she always offers banana cakes if you brought A-long tehtarik!:)
Chow, which means Come eat! amore than Seeya!:):)
