Remember when.......

>>A computer was something on TV
>from a science fiction show of note

>a window was something you hated to clean....

>And ram was the cousin of a goat.....

>>>Meg was the name of my girlfriend

>and gig was a job for the nights>
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 that you lost with age>
a cd was a bank account>
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 on 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 a pocket knife
>paste 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!>

Thanx to a native SI'der for this poem!
