Life

LIFE BEFORE THE COMPUTER

Memory was something you lost with age
An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano
A web was a spider's home
A virus was the flu
A CD was a bank account
A hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And if you had a 3 inch floppy .

... you just hoped nobody ever found out

Foreign basterds did not have the old PC thing going, so initial computer disks were the 5 inch floppy replaced by the 3 inch stiffy....

So the question was what was better? A 5 inch floppy or the 3 inch stiffy.

Girls always preferred the 3 inch stiffy, as they heard something about it being bigger?
