    Alas, it is sometimes more of the Grand Guignol, especially overseas. This is not something new; it has gone on for generations.

    “My first computer consisted of the fingers on my hands, and for larger numbers, my toes as well.”

    When I first went to Australia, I noticed most young people wore thongs (AKA flipflops) in place of shoes. It did not take long talking to them before I realized it was so they could count to 20.

    My favourite OS was DOS 5.1 (Dos 5.0 was buggy). It could do almost anything early Windows could do and do it faster, on older hardware, and without crashing.

    When I was first introduced to Windows 3, I couldn’t go ten minutes without crashing the system. Still using Windows 7 because 8 was so bad they skipped 9 and 10 is spyware.

    Next stop Linux.

    One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small

    And the ones that mother gives you, don’t do anything at all

    Go ask Alice, when she’s ten feet tall

    And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you’re going to fall

    Tell ‘em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call

    And call Alice, when she was just small

    When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go

    And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low

    Go ask Alice, I think she’ll know

    When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead

    And the white knight is talking backwards

    And the red queen’s “Off with her head”

    Remember what the dormouse said

    Feed your head, feed your head
