  • Life Before the Computer

    An application was for employment
    A program was a TV show
    A cursor used profanity
    A keyboard was a piano!

    Memory was something that you lost with age
    A CD was a bank account
    And if you had a 3 ½ inch floppy
    You hoped nobody found out!

    Compress was something you did to garbage
    Not something you did to a file
    And if you unzipped anything in public
    You'd be in jail for awhile!

    Log on was adding wood to a fire
    Hard drive was a long trip on the road
    A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
    And a backup happened to your commode!

    Cut - you did with a pocket knife
    Paste you did with glue
    A web was a spider's home
    And a virus was the flu!

    The 3 ½ inch floppy was originally called a micro-floppy to distinguish it from its two larger brothers. The original floppies were 8 inch.
