Just because I'm bored...

Kal's Mental Age:

55 Years Old.

And speaking of ages and just because I'm bored, I started making a list of things I haven't done or used in a very long time and most likely never will again.

Your job, if you chose to accept it, is to add to the list.

1. using a casette cartridge
2. typing in DOS commands at the prompt
3. adjusting the antenna of your TV set
4. adjust the horizontal/vertical tracking on your TV
5. buying a roll of film
6. changing the ribbon on a typewriter
7. using a rotary dial phone
8. using fdisk
9. formatting a floppy disk
10. putting a needle on a vinyl record
11. winding a watch
12. using Wordstar or WordPerfect

You're just more mature than you look ;)

You still use an 8-track?

Not regularly. :-D We have an old 8-track player that's with the sale stuff. It still works and I wish I could find a way to save a copy of our old 8-tracks in a way to play them now. We don't have a lot left, but one of the "Magic Organ - Christmas" just for the fact it was a favorite when I was little and my 8-track of Basil Rathbone reading and acting out "Robin Hood/Treasure Island". I still remember the tune to "Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum" he sings on it. :-)

I hope you're able to save it before it deteriorates. Some shops will do transfers onto disk. Not sure if I've heard of one going from 8-track though.
