Okay, these “you know you’re old when” things have gotten out of hand.

     This one that I saw recently gave “You know you’re old when you remember that, as a child, going to play with the computer meant drawing on paint…  AND IT WAS AWESOME!”

     There are a number of problems with this one.  First, they are using an image of MS Paint as it came with Windows 95.  That’s still fairly recent.  Second, Paint was never awesome.  My old DOS-based games (which I can no longer play because they won’t run on modern machines, sniff) were more fun.  Even worse.  I pre-date all of this.  I remember the TRS-80s (affectionately nicknamed the “trash-80s.”)  Even those pieces of *ahem* garbage had games that were more fun than Paint.
