Remember those cassette tapes that played cd's? The casette had a wire coming out of it, and you would hook it up to a portable CD player?

My first VCR* had a remote control that was not wireless.

* - VCR stand for videocassette recorder, which is a type of electro-mechanical device that uses removable videocassettes(VHS tapes**) that contain magnetic tape for recording analog audio and analog video from broadcast television so that the images and sound can be played back at a more convenient time.

** - VHS Tape stands for video home system, which is a consumer-level analog recording videotape-based cassette

Wanna hear something that makes [i]me [/i]feel old? Elijah Wood was eighteen when he was Frodo in The Lord of the Rings. Now he's thirty-one...

However, I was born in '96, not '76. But is twenty [i]really[/i] that big of a number? Edited by FuturePriest387

I took computer processing in high school using a Radio Shack TRS80...aka Trash80.

I have an appointment in 15 minutes, but I will so be back for this thread... and Papist & BG46 know a little of what I will be posting! ;)

But.... this is the kind of 'word processor' that I learned to 'keyboard' on in high school ... they'd probably been around a few decades by that point but still....

Anyone remember mimeographed handouts with PURPLE type?
