Life before computers

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 3 1/2 inch floppy You hoped nobody found out!

Compress was something you did to garbage Not something you did to a file And if you unzipped anything in public You`d 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 And a backup happened to your commode!

Cut you did with a pocket knife Paste you did with glue A web was a spider`s home And a virus was the flu!

I guess I`ll stick to my pad and paper And the memory in my head I hear nobody`s been killed in a computer crash But when it happens they wish they were dead!
