Things from your childhood that would baffle today's kids

14 May 2019 - 08:52 PM

What items from your childhood are no longer in use, available; and would probably baffle and befuddle todays kids?  :confused5:

 

broken records (or even unbroken ones)  :lol:

the little plastic insert that went into the big hole of a 45 RPM record so that you could play it on your record player without having to hunt down the adapter  :cool:

S&H Green Stamps (the S&H stood for Sperry and Hutchinson)

no seat belts in cars and NO digital interface on the dash

land line telephones; and, only one per household, located in a niche in the main hallway with an extremely long (25 foot or longer) coiled chord connecting the receiver to the phone

whiteout

the cashier counting out your change at the check-out stand, instead of handing it to you in one fell swoop with the receipt  :bang:

driving your automobile into a service station, running over the rubber hose that sounded the alert bell, waiting in your car while the attendant filled up your gas tank, checked your oil and cleaned your windshield  :blink2:

 

 


Archiving files to flash drives

05 December 2018 - 10:06 AM

Hopefully one of you technowizards can help with a minor issue that I've got occurring.  I'm in the process of converting old VHS tapes to digital format and then archiving the resulting file to a flash drive.  However,  regardless of which size flash drive I utilize (16GB, 32GB, 8GB) I keep getting the message "The file *******.mpg is too large for the destination file system".  Now, one the files is 6.3 gigs, another is 8.5 gigs and a third is 8.4 gigs; so all but the last two should fit on any one of the three drives listed.  But I keep getting that annoying message :bad PC:   Any solutions or suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks!!


Just a towel

28 October 2018 - 01:44 PM

As the topic title implies, the only requirement is there be a towel somewhere about the model. . .around his waist, on his shoulders, he's drying himself with it, he's laying out in the sun on it, he's drying his hair with it. . .you get the picture  :biggrin:

 

And now, some delicious examples  :dodolick:   :dodolick:   :dodolick:

Since Blake is such a sexy young man; and deserving of his own thread, I thought I'd start one  :claps:   :claps:   :claps:  :claps: He's got such a bubbly personality and is just so much fun to watch him interact with blogger Davey Wavey, that it's a hoot  :biggrin:
