    Default One thing I dont miss

    One thing I dont miss from 60s & 70s was power cuts,when we had them you could guarantee the eletri would be off for hours,Torches would come out to hunt for the c andles,no tv on the radio to listen to if it was a battery operated one.

    Heavy snowfalls and harsh winters with frosts

    January 1982 when we had a bad snowfall,walking to work in snow,being sent home and having 4 days off,heading out queing for a loaf of bread.

    Hard drives that ran out of space. I can remember when they were only 200MB.

    Dial up internet with time metered telephone calls.

    Windows 95 and 98. Always crashed.

    It's a bit before my time. When shops couldn't sell most things on a Sunday.

    I remember the first 3 well when I used my brother's old computer.

    Even in the early 1990s a lot of shops didn't open on a Sunday, & half day closing was still in place some ways.
