After being reminded of this song, I immediately repurchased the Mp3. I previously got the track via scour.net (or maybe even the orriginal napster :oops: ). Now I really feel old.

That's not so old. I, however, can only be lulled to sleep by the dulcet tones of an external 9.6k modem connecting to a local BBS.

I'll answer that, YES. If anyone even knows what Argh is talking about they are at least nerdy.

HA! My high school graduation gift was a subscription to AOL and a brand new, blazing fast 56k modem.

AOL didn't even exist until I was a freshman in college.

Commodore 64? I had one of those. No modem though. I had a few games on cassette tape, and they took forever to load.

I had a Commodore 64, Apple IIc, Atari 2600, all that shit.

We used to have to go to a building called a library, use a filing system known as a card catalog to search for topics in the Dewey Decimal System to find objects called books which we would then have to read, synthesize data from several sources, then write the papers ourselves. Often on paper with pens in cursive (what you kids today call "joined-up writing").

Speaking of which, you younuns will never know the joy of lining up a college application on an IBM Selectric II and hoping that what you typed landed just above the line provided. Nor will you know the sensual pleasure of sniffing White-Out.

Wait until you get a load of law students using laptops in class. In case you haven't gotten the memo, get yourself a nice laptop for lawl school.

I used a mechanical typewriter. The electric ones are too hard to line up and don't work well on carbon copies.

White out is still widely in use today, buddy. :lol:

Mechanical typewriters bind up too much for me.

And as for laptops in class, will it be a problem if I bring a scribe instead?

Just call your scribe Mac (possible place one of those Apple stickers on his/her forehead), and I doubt anyone will give you a hard time...

Okay...well, that sounds time consuming. How did you manage to find time for other important stuff? Like xbox, and Facebook, and texting with your bff?

I think you should use 'scrivenor' rather than 'scribe'. It has more gravitas.
