I had to change the channels on the tv when my dad wanted to watch something else.

That was my job, too, until the newer TV. But he'd also tell me 'boy, don't turn it so fast, you'll break it!"

We didn't even have a TV yet.

But at my cousin's house, I learned to make a click sound with my mouth, that tricked the tv into thinking the clicker had been used, and it changed the channel. LOL

Hilarity of course, ensued when I would change the channel on them, out of the blue. :ROFLMAO:

I guess you could say I was literally the remote control.

You are entitled to your opinion. You are not entitled to tell me what mine must be.

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

Freedom without responsibility is chaos.

LD was amazing.

But there was also a VideoDisc called CED, which came out before VHS...

I don't remember those at all. I remember when the whole VHS versus beta Max war was going on. My dad bought a betamax and swore it was Superior to VHS. He may have been right, but it was still the wrong decision.

8” Floppy Discs for some CP/M operating system. We had IMSAI 8080 systems in the system programming lab. They had Z80A microprocessors in them. They were S100 systems.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-100_bus

Later on I got hired on part time for BSD Unix job and we had to boot the system for any software updates via an 8” floppy as well on we had 12 serial ports 4 per card and a whopping 1.5mb worth of memory and two 80 MB hard drives.
