my brain just threw up a little…

about hardware

Conversation between my coworkers about hardware. Apparently it is some sort of a “temporal one-up” as we say things like “And I remember my first hard-drive. It was 125Meg western that sounded like an asthmatic chainsaw on the best of days.” With someone else **temporally one-upping** with “Oh I remember my family using a TANDY!” As someone else comes back with “Oh I remember soldering my RAM…”


Every time I find myself in a conversation that flows in that “back in MY d-a-y” direction, my affection for my friends and coworkers keeps me from saying things like:

“… so this one time, my family and I are hiding from a sabertooth tiger in a cave covered in mammoth shit, and my cousin comes up to me and complains about broken counting string beads. I looked up and said “seriously, next time your teeth fall out, just use them to make an abacus instead of throwing them away. I’ll show you how to do it.””

love you, guys
