Yes and it's also life and if you say stupid things people are liable to get annoyed or angry at you for it.

Oh, when I said, "she wasn't, so don't", I didn't mean "she wasn't, so don't say it". I meant, "she wasn't, so don't because it makes you look foolish". So don't worry, I'm not trying to magically stop you from saying whatever you want. I was trying to give a little helpful nudge that might give you a moment of self-recognition. CT is clearly good at computers. Doing the "shiny box" routine you did around her was laughable.

can't we go back to talking about how we're discovering the fact that we're old? It's much better than forum drama.

Are you kidding? I'll do anything to distract me from being old at 19.

pft, yer nothing but a young pup still. you teenagers today don't even know how good you have it: I remember my first tv remote came with a cord that attached it to the tv!

And that my first computer was a commodore 64.

oh, I recently watched the ninja turtles movie again. Turns out that when I was a kid I had terrible taste in movies. I should have just lived with my illusions about how good the movie was and not rewatched it.

Yes, I did that with Bucky O'Hare a while back.
Oh well, I loved it at the time Smile

that's the main reason I am nervous about buying DVD sets of shows I loved when I was younger: I'd hate to discover suddenly how lame they actually were.

True. Some things remain awesome though. I think the muppets are still pretty cool. Particularly the movies. It is a horrible secret of mine that my favourite version of A Christmas Carol is, in fact, the muppet version.

I saw Care Bears recently for the first time since I was a kid. I went into sugar shock. Ugh. I mean... jeeeeeeeezus! But I used to love it. And my kids liked the movie, so *shrug*.

That's how I felt when I checked out the Boomerang channel for the first time.
Although The Smurfs still entertains.

And the Snorks. I used to work at a Red Robins restaurant.. (tasty burgers, and family-dining like woah) so of course we'd have one tv with the news, one with sports, and like 8 with the Boomerang channel on that I always tried to ignore... except early in the afternoons when I noticed that the Snorks would play... then I'd be this 8-year old geek, staring at the tv to and from each of my tables. Of course it helps that there's no real sound.. so if the show is in fact cornier than I remember.. its not from the visuals.

Right there with you Mini. Remember the TV remote controls that clicked and used harmonic sounds to change the channel? No batteries required.

Trash 80 with 4k of ram, and saving up the 200 dollars to upgrade to the 16k memory expansion box that was twice the size of the original computer. Being the first person in my entire high school with a home computer in 1978.

(Tandy/Radio Shack TRS-80 model I using an Zilog Z80 processor clocked at 1.77 MHz processor for those of you people born since 1980)

Tell you one thing - you learn how to write fucking tight, fast, efficient and elegant code when you are limited to 4k ram. That skill has lasted me my entire career in the IT industry.
