I don't consider myself to be "old" but every now and again I encounter a situation that requires the old clichÃ©.... back in my day, or I remember when. Stemming from this thread https://netrider.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=40465 Earlier this week I had one of those moments. I was visiting a friend that has a Wii and after having a go on it myself I was left not only totally hyped but also in a state of reflection about how far technology has come and wondered what was yet to evolve. The 4 adults spent the next hour or so discussing all the things that they remember from bygone times and how much of an impact certain things had. Today I still cant help but be amazed at how life has changed so much in 30 years. My first real memory of "the times they are a changin' " was in the mid 70's when my dad came home with a brand new TV. Not that TV was anything to get excited about, everyone had a telly, but this was different, this was a COLOUR TV. We were the first people in our neighbourhood to get one. Dad was the manager of a pub, and when they got new TV's for the bar, my dad got one for us. We weren't rich but we certainly felt rich sitting in front of our new 26inch colour TV. My house was crowded with kids every afternoon all mezmerized by cartoons in colour, suddenly I was the popular kid at school. Overtime, naturally others bought colour telly's and the popularity dwindled, much to my mothers relief. Plenty of other technologies have emerged since then and I have always marvelled at each and every one of them, but nothing will ever compare to that day we got colour TV. My mum on the other hand, she remembers as a kid when TV first graced our lives, people would gather of an evening on the footpaths out side TV stores,with folding chairs, blankets and thermos'. Every generation has its own inventions but some stand out more than others. What has been the biggest impact on your life in regards to "the times they are a changin'" ? What stands out the most?
