Perhaps we should go back to floppy disks

Like NSAS of the 1960s during the Apollo days - less storage capacity than we get on a small memory stick

I'd already settle for a barebones win, where I select what I need... instead of them constantly telling me that they know best what I need...   :-X

Had a Vic-20 with a tape drive back in the day.  Displayed color though!

One thing i have noticed when getting older, times go by so fast. My mother and some relatives use to say when i was child, when you get that certain age, you get the feeling that times go by so fast.
