Jaded Computer User..
How jaded modern technology has made us… erm, me, me! Not you!
I was downloading a file from the web today. It was approximately 111 megs. By the end of the three minutes it took to download I was drumming my fingers on the desk and impatiently tapping my foot waiting for the interminable time to be over.
I can remember when 100 megs was about the upper limit that I’d attempt to download at 56K. Mindspring had a twelve HOUR limit on connections and files any larger than that wouldn’t download in time.
I can remember 300 baud (something a good typists can out-type) and all you traded were small text files if that and nothing else.
Then I realized… that one file I impatiently waited three whole minutes for this morning was ten times LARGER than the first hard-drive I ever had!
Damn, I’m old in computer years…
