You know you have to update your pc when:

   Posted by: wkossen   in Uncategorized

You just ran out of punch cards

or

your computer store can’t supply any more 5 1/4 inch floppy disks

or

your 10 MB harddisk starts making rattling noises you never heard before

or

your monochrome Hercules monitor starts smoking

or

when you try to install windows 3.1 and it complains your system isn’t supported anymore

or

When you just broke your coax cable and can’t buy a new one

<!--more-->

or

when your telecom operator stopped supporting your 2400 baud bulletin board connectivity

or

you just bought an update for wordperfect and it tells you that it won’t run on MS Dos 3.3

or

You try to buy a new program on a mini-cassette-cartridge but all you can get is cd’s

or

your virusscanner won’t get updates anymore since they won’t fit on the diskettes

or

You want to buy a math co-processor for your 8088 machine but can’t find one in any store

or

your keyboard broke and you can’t get one with this 5-pin DIN connector anywhere

or

your computer tells you that march 26 2009 isn’t a valid date

or

you’ve run clean out of Borsu 10MB Bernouilly cartridges and no-one has any more for sale

or

You can only download working software from sites tagged with ‘abandonware’

or

The only organisation offering spare parts is the local computermuseum

or

You’ve just set your browser startpage to http://oldversion.com

or

you are amazed when you look at all the modern and advanced systems they show you at http://www.old-computers.com

or

recently you got addicted to the intricate game of pong

or

you just bought a brand new harddisk, but your system bios doesn’t recognize it and when you finally get it to work you find out that fdisk.com and format.com won’t allow you to actually use it…

Cheers…
