In a similar vein I now refer to people dying as "reached their expiration date"

I'm sure we all do it.
Some IT terminology is a little weird at first. "killing" a process always seemed harsh, "parents and children" in processes is very mechanical sounding to a family man. And projects never really go 'live'.
Weird at first but I guess it makes things more palatable to remember the relationship of things.
I still shudder when someone says "they're having a play" with some new tech. It never excited me that much.

Not quite as bad as telling a nurse in the neonatal ward to "abort" a process on her computer...

ho ho , that reminds me - off topic - you know those pendant alarm things they give old people ... the software company I worked for got a report writing gig at one of these alarm companies, I was the only one old enough have used this early 1990 DOS database system. day one - can I test on the backup server - um no we don't have one. One hour later..opps crashed the system. No worries we will reboot.

Vision in my mind some old person frantically pressing emergency button...

Well, if y'all want to go back in time I have to ask how many of you remember Leo's dancers on our Trash-80s?
Heh, do you rmember the first time you saw that green on your screen on your Trash-80?
I still have a couple Trash-80s stored up on that shelf to the right of this work station. Heavy-duty shelf, too. Those 80s are so heavy. Got a whole box of spare circuit boards for the 80, too. Lots of programs.
Wow, just reminded me of the true floppy disk. I even have some of those still new in the box.

Me too, and one really old computer that can use them if I ever decide to set it up again.

Anyone remember "Basic Faster and Better" by Lewis Rosenfelder for the TRS-80?
