on old technologies …

So this happened … I read this on my twitter feed:

and commented about it to my co-librarian with whom I share an office.

Me: “I didn’t know this …” read it out loud.

Mrs. N. (Who is a totally tech literate functioning human being): “What’s magnetic storage?”

Me: “You know, like a floppy disk that has the spinning magnetic disk in it.”

Mrs. N.: “Oh, I kind of remember what they looked like.”

Oy!!!  I got SO old.  I put my head down and started working and suddenly, my extremely competent and professional colleagues are younger than the children I taught using not only 6-inch floppy disks, but 3.5″ floppy disks, too!

On the bright side, RETIREMENT LOOMS over the near horizon!!!  LOL!
