Obsolete Skills

February 22, 2008


I’ve come to realize that I have many obsolete skills. Check out this gigantic list of skills considered to be obsolete: Obsolete Skills. I must be old, because as I scan through the list, I keep saying “oh yeah, I’ve done that.” Here are some examples of how old I am… Rabbit ears. PASCAL. Dialing a rotary phone. Formatting a floppy. Putting a needle on a vinyl record. Rewinding VCR tapes. Rewinding an audio cassette using a Bic pen. Setting a baud rate, parity and stop-bits. AT commands for dial-up modems. Using a microfiche. Archie.
