---A Poem For The Guys Over 30---

A computer was something on TV
From a science fiction show of note
A window was something you hated to clean
And ram was the cousin of a goat.

Meg was the name of my girlfriend
And gig was a job for the nights
Now they all mean different things
And that really mega bites.

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A curser used profanity
A keyboard was a piano.

A log on was adding wood to the 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 knife.
Paste you did with glue
A web was a spider's home
And a virus was the flu.

Compress was something you did to the garbage
Not something you did to a file.
And if you unzipped anything in public
You'd go to jail for a while.

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

I guess I'll stick to my pen and paper
And the memory in my head
I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
But when it happens, they wish they were dead.

Thanks for that . I needed a humurous run down memory lane
