[GAME] I'm so old

I’m so old, I played Pokemon Red when I was 10.

@John_Betong something I still do sometimes today lol

I’m so old that the acoustic coupler was used for my first internet connection, in a Uni library, to PRINT out the file contents held on a server on the other side of the Atlantic, as no-one at all had a home connection! My need was considered to be unusually special and the library staff said that they were dying to find someone who actually needed to use it. I was their first one.

So did my friend for his final year Uni project. And he managed to drop the whole pile one day when someone dumped into him as he opened the door - luckily the hundred or so cards slid along the floor and by a miracle all stayed in order, so he could quickly get them in the correct order.

I’m so old I rememeber when the TV had to “warm up” - you couldn’t watch anything until the valves had literally become warm enough to work.
Now, with smart TVs, it’s the same except it’s called “booting up”!
