So sorry catty-cb, I just discovered your comment on my post. And don't forget those 8 inch floppies.

I'm so old - each morning several of my bones want to greet me individually: argh, good morning dorsal, argh, good morning shoulder blade, argh, good morning foot link ...

Ha! Me too! Including the original disks of SC 2000 from 1993!

BTW, did you know that France's antipode is near NZ? It feels like we are neighbors. *:P.

But, I'm so old that, that... oh heck! That I forgot what I was going to say...

I'm so old I remember when schools used overhead projectors with clear plastic sheets! The teacher's hand would block out some of the letters and numbers. It was either that or just using a plain old whiteboard with markers. Anytime we wanted to watch a film, they had to wheel in an actual TV. By the time I reached middle school I was just blown away when the 'new' place had digital projectors linked to the computer!

I'm so old I remember what happens if you left the sheets on the projector for too long

I'm so old, I can still remember the sound of steam engine driven saws cutting the trees in halfs and the aching sound when they felt from the flat conveyor, echoing down the hills in the small valley where I grew up. And those people standing at the river side with this strange tool, a long stick with a rake to fetch the trees from the river and pulling them to the waters edge.

And the workers when they moved house, sometimes they carried their wooden doors with them from the old to the new house - because they had so much love and respect for the material they worked with.

[EDIT] When I translate directly from german to english it would be a 'raftsmen hook'. Is this correct?

I'm so old I actually remember Northwest Airlines DC-10's lined up at SFO. Always got a great view of them there and in flight when I reached my aunt's in South San Francisco.
