Is that an Apple II, ][ , //e or //c (or maybe the new GS)? And how much memory 32K, 48K, 64K or 128K? I had a //e that I upgraded to a GS.

Hey! We "older" boomers don't to the comb-over anymore. We just shave it all off and not pretend to have it all.

...Now let me log off my crusty Apple-II and see if I can find some 5 1/4 floppies to back up some of these nostalgic comments.

I can sort of identify with the old guy in this one, being something of a comparatively old guy myself (50). The Boomers are finally leaving and opening up some of the good jobs that they've hoarded for the past 25 years, and you find yourself competing with some 25 year old whose known more about techology for half his life than you ever will know. Sometimes you just want to smack 'em on the nose!
Funny thing, I find my teenage kids are as filled with disbelief when I tell them we didn't have internet and computers and smart phones "back when I was your age" as I felt when my dad told me they didn't have television "back when he was my age".
