For us OLD people who still remember how it was:

- An application was for employment.
- A program was a TV show.
- A cursor used profanity.
- A keyboard was a piano!
- Memory was something that you lost with age.
- A CD was a bank account!
- And if you had a broken disk, it would hurt when you found out!
- Compress was something you did to garbage, not some- thing you did to a file!
- If you unzipped anything in public you would be in jail for a while!
- Log on was adding wood to a fire.
- Hard drive was a long trip on the road.
- A mouse pad was where a mouse lived.
- Cut you did with a pocket knife.
- Paste you did with glue.
- A web was a spiders home.
- And a virus was the flu!
