Does anyone remember the old 1960s TV show "Lost in Space" and having a crush on Penny Robinson? She was big-time fantasy material for lots of boys. Oh yes, and the robot was cool too! But not so much as fantasy material. I'm just saying.
I think you meant Judy, not skinny little Penny. Hot blonde Marta Kristen was Judy.

Does anyone remember when on-line dating meant you actually physically spoke to a woman while waiting at the check-out?

Nice. I just upgraded my gaming machine to an AMD 6 core 3.8/4.2, 16 gig ram with a 3 gig Radeon 7950 card.

But my first gaming machine was a Radio Shack Color Computer and a TI/99A from Texas Instruments.

Even though tape and 8" discs were just starting to come into vogue, I trained on an IBM punch card machine in college.

And we thought we were real geeks!

Oh, I'm on an E-Machine, AMD E2-1800 and Celeron 2.93GHz w XP Pro

I remember in 1984 we upgraded to a Winchester 30Mb hard drive, that will be all the storage The Warehouse will ever need, think it was a Northern Telecom 585, AS400? Girls keyed in orders, pain getting them to let me do Backups, read and write pointers needing to be reset,

And you got along just fine thank you. There was no need for one of them new-fangled red-LED calculator thingys. That was just more evidence of the dumbing down of America!

Yes. I once asked the librarian where the self help section was and told she would defeat the purpose by answering...

Do you remember trusting your car to the man who wears the star?
