They actually spent time with family and friends, I know what a strange time it was to actually spend time with real people instead of their image on a screen.

They kept a notebook that contained addresses and phone numbers of relatives. and friends. Now the notebook holds passwords and login information.

You know @SQUEEKY2 , I bet I spend as much time with family and friends as you spend railing against technology.. :-)

SQUEEKY2's avatar

Ya see @janbb I am not against REAL technology, but real technology is about innovation and advancement, not gadgetry that most people get all caught up in.

Got the locks reset, and had new keys made, for their home, office, and automobile doors?

You should never need to reset more than one password at a time.

If you get my drift….

You reset passwords?

funkdaddy's avatar

Drove to the bank.
Called and waited on hold.
Tried to schedule a technician.
Waited for a return call.
Used more stamps.
Drove to strip malls and department stores.

P.S. a password manager makes life a bit easier at least, I like lastpass, but there are several good ones. Some people have really strong opinions about which is best.

@skfinkel The site wouldn’t let me in. No choice.

@funkdaddy Consiering using one.

Hunting and gathering. Oh, and fixing dinner used to start right after breakfast every day, not just holidays.
I remember.

I don’t know for sure BUT; one of my high school buddies had 9 uncles and 6 aunts between his mom’s and dad’s sides of the family.
@Hawaii_Jake called it tiddly-winks, but I think when it got dark . . .

Once upon a time people would do and be.

Do be do be do.

I am at the point where I am almost throwing my phone. It is a great tool, but it is endlessly frustrating. It’s like wiping your ass, with shoestring…

SQUEEKY2's avatar

^^And people just can’t understand why I want nothing to do with a damn smart phone!?
When all I want a cell phone for is storing phone numbers and talking to people, and you know something ,my flip phone has never been hacked.

They built pyramds, and temples, and amazing plumbing.

No TV??? MY GOD, what is the world coming to???
