    Working with teachers younger than my sons makes me feel old every day!

    Seriously though, I would have reacted the same if I was shown a wax cylinder at their age ☺

    Kids are bad with the old generation of technology, Teachers are bad with the new generation of technology.

    Flashback to a 10 year old me being the OHP monitor during assembly, changing the acetate sheets with words to the hymn we were singing that morning.

    Close enough

    Though I've had 'em all, from the big, bulky vinyl boxes, to portable cassette (and CD) players, minidisks, the really old MP3 players that were basically hard drives with a shell..

    I had a minidisc player. One of my first 'splurges' on 'new' technology when I started earning more than just 'saturday job' money. Still have it. It still works.
