Yeah, I really miss the 1990’s sometimes.
All those Beige computer cases.
70’s, 80’s , and 90’s rock music.
All the shopping malls and stores from those days.

It was a carefree time in California.
Relaxed and easy going.
What you did not do today you could do next week.
There was NO rush on things.
It’s NOT like people were worried the World was going to end tomorrow.
You could always do it Next month.

Those old computers and CRT’s were the Best.

GAH! The MS natural keyboard! The horror!

Once you're getting old (25 and up) and develop tendonitis, you'll learn to value it. 😁

What? 25 is old? I'm almost 40 and I feel better than when I was 25.

But I dunno I just always just hated any non standard keyboards. 😀

25 is fully grown up in brain terms and 40 is the end of youth (in some physical ways)

i can't imagine a 25 years old looking back on this period in 25 years from now with the same affectionate nostalgia as people look back on the 90's and before - and yet it will probably be that way!

maybe keyboards themselves will be objects of nostalgia, doubt it though - some techs just persist and persist

The tactile feeling of a mouse or keyboard is hard to beat. Or that is what I like to think.

It is disturbing for me to watch my daughter play Minecraft on her iPad without a controller. It is madness, I say!

That's still pretty young, but I'd admit some people do develop tendonitis, and some people did like the feel of the MS Natural Keyboard. But I prefer the Model M instead.
