When you exactly know the single steps to change/add a ECL memory "board" in a Cray-2 and how long it will take - far away from plug'n'play.

They are CRAYzy and have no glue about vector computers - especially the effort what "Bubbles" would do.

You remember 'do not fold, spindle or mutilate' and you know what it means.

You go to the local public library to read printed papers.

 

You've used a microfiche at the library.

You don't mind a computing device taking a few seconds to boot up, because that's just like the valve radio you had as a child needing a few seconds to warm up.

You meet someone born in 1991, which seems like five minutes ago and yet they are already 27...!

When you realize that almost any single *.dll is bigger than the total capacity of the hard disk drive in your first PC.

Hard disk drive? What is that?

When you're at the supermarket and the checkout operator recites the script taught at the team training session:

 

"did you find everything you needed today?" 

 

To which my standard reply is "oh - I've probably forgotten something - can you remember what it was?" 

 

Nowadays, instead of laughing or looking perplexed, the young ones go through my bags or look at the receipt, making suggestions, "you haven't got milk - could it be that?" etc.

 

I commend that they're helpful and sympathetic but this leaves me without an adequate response.

 

I need a new line.
