My birthday was a few days ago, and the Eldest Younger Brother Tom sent me a few reminiscences that I wonder might still be so. So, Mean Dean of "Heal Your Church Website", or any other computer professionals who might be reading --- after a fine job of programming, do programmers still hibernate for a few days in recovery? Or are computers kinder to their humans in these latter days?
Here's the memory list:
Hey there, OLDER Sister o’ mine-
Blessings and felicitude on this thy Birthday, in Number of (dare I say it?) eight and forty.
Remember when :
Computers were only good for making Daddy sleep through the weekends??
It was science fantasy (Jetsons) to have carpal tunnel syndrome?
“Oh, my aching finger! I had to push that button EIGHT TIMES today! That Spacely is a slavedriver!”
It was a status symbol to have a portable phone the size of a briefcase?
Ditto for a business calculator?
We thought it was funny that small children could operate and program VCRs before they could talk?
Oh, for the good old days…
Your ever-loving Brother on the Left Coast
