    Remember typewriters and ribbons and undoing those pesky letter-thingies when you were typing too fast? And then when an eraser ribbon came around it was like EUREKA!!!! And when they became digitilised it was like HALLELUIA!!! and now were all like..... not even PRINTING shit anymore lol

    Remember when you actually had to get out of your chair and turn the channel manually on your tv set?

    That what my father had us for!

    Remember when you had only a handful of VHF channels, and the UNF channels were always snowy. And after a bad storm, your father would have to go up on the roof to adjust the antenna: louds of yelling "Is it clear yet!"

    I remember over a decade ago trying to explain to a 21 year old receptionist what a portable manual typewriter was - a kind of word processing laptop with its own case (and this is the high tech part that blew her mind) that never needed electricity or recharging.
