    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v4)

    I've entered the world of Alexa and found out it makes a full range of Star Trek sounds on command, like "Alexa, play bridge sounds", "Alexa red alert", etc. and I'm like a 10 year old again LOL

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    LOL - I taught my first computer to say " Mrs. Peel, we're needed" when it started up.

    Remember the old computers with the floppy disks? I was young and we used DOS. Our computer came with lots of games on these floppy disks plus the version of Word back then. Technology sure has improved since then.

    I remember the floppy disk well, a giant leap forwards from using tape recorders. You are so right about technology moving forwards. I was talking to my brother today, saying that when I decide to treat myself to a new PC, I would like to get a 4tb SSD, then my mind flashed back to the very first hard drive I ever had. It was a 1/2mb. At the time I remember thinking, wow I will never run out of room on that.

    I have a plastic case of blank floppy disks that had belonged to my father. It has a clear lid on it, and the disks are all bright colors. Included are packs of the little peel & stick labels you wrote on and put on them. LOL

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    I have some of them but they must be a poor mans version, they are just in a tiny cardboard box. Somewhere in my study room, that's my posh way of saying a space at one end of my bedroom, I have a old external usb floppy disk drive. I can't imagine myself ever using either again, but don't want to part with them.

    My first computer was an Atari 800 pop top with plug in memory. Eventually I managed to get one of the 5 1/4 inch drives with floppy disk to replace the old tape drive I had. Though I was in the high life when I upgraded to a Commodore 64 with two floppy drives. Spent hours typing in various game programs and other programs. I think I still have some 5 1/4 floppies floating around but no system that would read them now. Even had some 8 1/2 floppies for a short period and I think it was an old L cassette.

    I use both, but have more issues with the smart devices with the Google assistant. Alexa seems to work better for me. (Not to mention I don't want to get them started talking to each other about me behind my back LOL)

    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v4)

    Went to my bariatric surgeon yesterday. I have lost 8 lbs over 2 months. I had another fill and now I have 7 and 1/2 ccs in my band. I'm hoping that it will help me with my body. I also have some tests on April 4. I have to go down for an EGD and a liver and gallbladder ultrasound. So I'm not looking forward to that, but I got to lose more weight.
