    Life Before the Computer

    An application was for employment
    A program was a TV show
    A cursor used profanity
    A keyboard was a piano!

    Memory was something that you lost with age
    A CD was a bank account
    And if you had a 3 ½ inch floppy
    You hoped nobody found out!

    Compress was something you did to garbage
    Not something you did to a file
    And if you unzipped anything in public
    You'd be in jail for awhile!

    Log on was adding wood to a fire
    Hard drive was a long trip on the road
    A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
    And a backup happened to your commode!

    Cut - you did with a pocket knife
    Paste you did with glue
    A web was a spider's home
    And a virus was the flu!

    I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
    And the memory in my head
    I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
    But when it happens they wish they were dead!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
