Recently gave my teenage cousin a crash course in MS-DOS, so he could run an emulator that would play old, 8-bit computer games. That was fun, but definitely weird.

You had to mention that antique. Up until 2008 my company's inventory/receiving and disbursing program was a MS-DOS based system created by EDS a gazillion years ago. I hated it having been introduced to computers via Windows 95.


F1 = BACK on this screen, but you have to press F4 for BACK on the next screen.

I had the joy of explaining film photography to my nieces that are all under 10. 

LOL Not too many years ago, a Luddite friend of mine had to buy a digital camera, since his local developing vendor discontinued print. He must use one of those self serve kiosks now. 


No cell phone or tablet/lap top either.

Having just fallen foul of the digital age (my laptop stopped recognising my printer and I just found out that it's because the three year old printer has 'outdated software), I had to take a perfectly good piece of machinery to the dump today...all because we must 'buy the next thing'.:twisted:
