You know you're old when......

Post by yeshead 777 » Tue Feb 21, 2006 12:33 pm

Thought I'd throw this one out there today as I turn 44 since there's so many old geezers like me on the forum-and then some that are young enough to be my kids. Hey-I just described GH!(He-He).

You know you're old when you still think of the compact disk as "newfangled".

When you mention VMS in an OS geekfest (like I did in the Intel/Apple ad thread).

When you dig out your Renaissance albums, google "Annie Haslem" and see her current photo.

When you say something like "next to Annie Haslem, Susie B. is my favorite female prog vocalist" :lol:

When you refer to VMS as "that newfangled thing", and fondly remember TOPS-10. And TSS-8.

When you realize Steve Howe is only 14 years older than you-have you seen him lately?

At what point during Mr. Howe's illustrious career would it have mattered whether or not he was 14 years older than you? He's been ugly for the entire ride!!!!
