A Day Without Internet!

No Internet!

I went about a day without Internet (my Internet was down).  I survived -grin and no computers were harmed.

I remember that it was not that long ago when there was no Internet and no computers.  Being without Internet, I was thinking of creating an IBO post about how much better things were before computers and the Internet.  As I began to think and compare, I came to a conclusion!   I was WRONG!

Some folks may say that pre-Internet was a simpler time, I do not think so.  Things may have seemed less complicated, therefore simpler.  Compared to today, you were 'handcuffed'.

before the Internet VCR

If you think back, all our paperwork was done by hand or typewriter.  I had a secretary, thank goodness, and she was the best.  In pre-Internet days, you had to have a secretary.  

Some of you may remember a literal 'room' full of seven years of files.  

Pre-Internet technology was primitive to say the least.  Remember fax machines and drum copiers, they were disasters.  How about white out?  If you made a typing mistake, you used 'white out'.

Spell check, auto fill,  copy and paste, save, passwords, and much much more make our lives easier.  Not too long ago, it took several minutes for computers to boot up, and computers 'crashed' regularly and often.  This way you could lose everything that you had been working on...it has happened to me, how about you?

download joke years
Downloads used to take YEARS!

Appointments, phone calls, follow-up, pricing, planning, forecasts, and just about everything else was done by hand.  As a salesman, it took about 30 minutes to document everything on a new customer and to set up two files...alphabetical and chronological.  Now, maybe three minutes or so.  

Time saved is probably the biggest benefit of computers. It took me 5 to 10 hours per week, to generate 100 leads.  Now you can drag and drop 100 leads into a file in about five minutes! 

Available Knowledge.  Right along side time saved is the benefit of almost instant and umlimited knowledge.  In the pre-Internet days, you had to go to the library or book store.  Now you and I simply employ our search box.  

scan the computer literally joke

There were certainly some great things about pre-Internet days, but when most of us look back in time, what I think we see is over shadowed by our youth.   When we were young, we could conquer the world.  

You know what, we can still conquer the world, and now we can do it faster, easier, better, and with less paperwork.  Forget about the old days, these are pretty darn good times, right now.  

internet joke

Internet Jokes:  WARNING!  Some or most of these jokes are bad.

Why do computers keep their figures?  Small Bytes.

What's the first sign of aging in a computer?  Loss of memory.

When a computer gets a virus, it is a terminal illness.  

old computer
Look at the keys...not Qwerty!

Is Google male or female?   Hint...it finishes sentences for you.

Spiders love the Internet, home of the World Wide Web.

While programmers race to produce bigger and better idiot proof computers, the world population is still winning.

State of the Art is a term used for computers we cannot afford.


first computer was an apple, adam and eve joke

Having multiple passwords my not stop hackers, but it stops me.

Never let your computer know that you are in a hurry.

No Granny, that does not mean Wow That's Fantastic.
senior texting

Never fart in an Apple Store.  Why?  They don't have windows.

Jake sent a short voice recognition message to his wife.  
He concluded the message with 'Your loving husband'.  
She received the message followed by 'You loving has-been'.

I have in my hand a device that is capable of accessing all knowledge ever known to man.
I use it to look at pictures of cats.

be strong I whispered to my WiFi joke

Thank you for reading, my friends, I wish you much success.


PS.  What do you think?   Are we better off with all our technology today?
