    In years to come that will be 'there was only 5 Channels. All in low definition'

    My mates kids are going to get a three pack of brand new TDK D90 cassettes for christmas each, I used to swap magic mix tapes with their dad thirty years ago.
    Now I need a nice red Ball Pentel for them to write the track listings with.
    If they are lucky they might get a walnut and a small orange as well, with a nice shiny thruppeny bit.
    They still love me whatever I get them...mum and dad don't do coasters!

    Our remote control was a bamboo stick.

    Edit...double post...shoot me.

    When in your day at school, sixth form girls had compulsary typing lessions. On typewriters.

    My first job after a levels was at the Halifax, a good honest building society back in the day.
    The chief clerk got in a row with one of the many ladies in the typing pool...lovely old collective noun there.
    The argument got rather heated...he was not allowed to jump a two day queue (!) for typing a letter, so he suddenly ranted...
    " You are all being replaced to three F£$¥#₩€ word processors next year anyway"...
    Bit rude, but factually correct sadly.

    I remember when the only way to talk to someone when you were out and about was handheld CB.
