lol. Reminds me of the Bud bottles with the "Born on" date on the bottle :)
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...
I try to copy + paste in real life..
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?
