Patrick graduates to high school

Today I’ll be attending Patrick’s graduation from Jr. High. Damn, can’t believe he’s going to high school. When I graduated from Jr. High? The hot technology? A floppy disk drive for your Apple II. I remember my dad being so happy that he got a 64kb memory card, too. That’s kilobytes, not gigabytes.

I’m so proud of Patrick who is one hell of a great kid. Count your lucky stars. Two years before he starts driving. Scary!

  1. When I started high school I had an Apple ][ +, hard drives didn’t exist (at least for any computer I used), by the time I graduated, the Mac had arrived. Of course, no hard disk either. My first hard drive experience was a Profile hard drive on a Lisa computer (which in the beginning Mac days was required for programming the Mac), all of 5MB. Last I checked, my Canon SLR takes photos greater than 5MB in some cases. Whoa!

  3. Yeah, we get it — time marches on and all that. Scintillating commentary, there dufus … don’t quit your day job; the garbage trucks are calling as we speak. Plonk
