You know you are getting old when

Just a few things that make me feel old sometimes... what does the same for you?

  • someone's definition of "legacy code" includes something you wrote

  • you know what "load *,8,1" means

  • you remember when we used to call them "scripting languages"

  • you simply can't continue to code after 2:30 AM

  • you had a BBS handle

  • this means something to you: "Hello everybody out there using minix -"

  • these screens ring a bell? :

"I had a Commodore 64"
"I had an Atari 800"
"I had a Sinclair"
"Did you have a disk drive?"
"No, but I had a cassette drive"
