Old School Technology


BGOBGAI! Quickie:

TypewriterDoes anyone remember using mechanical dinosaurs called Typewriters?  If you’re old like me, and remember personally wishing Ferdinand Magellan a nice little trip, you’re likely to have learned how to type on an old typewriter.  If you lived in one of those highfalutin rich neighborhoods, you probably had a typewriter that had an automatic erase option. Lucky pucks!

In some schools today, students are being handed out laptop computers so that they can get the most of their education, while I still remember the height of technology resulting in a scientific calculator in which I could put in the greatest adolescent boy number in history…55378008.  why was this the greatest number to adolescent boys? Because if you took your calculator (which, kiddos, was a device and not an app), and typed that number in, then turned the calculator upside down, you would see the word “BOOBLESS” in the display…oh what naughty boys we were!

What old school technology do you remember?

Greetings blog wanderers and seekers of truth, or whatever truth appears to be from the mind of a warped individual. You have reached the inner sanctum of some guy named Alan. Having graduated college sometime shortly after the Earth cooled, he finds himself in his late 30's and working out in the real world. His humor is dry and his outlook not so serious and somehow has picked up the nasty habit of writing about himself in the third person. He is married with child and loves his family, sports and, of course, his beloved video games...likelihood of his growing up? Not good. Are you an established site or magazine looking for a writer? Drop me a line if you are interested.
