I was talking with a workmate about our first computers, and admittedly my experience was different because Dad brought home an old machine from work (a CP/M?) with a magazine of code that you typed in to make games, but generally it was just a conversation about computers… until she said, “wow! that sounds like the 80s” as if we were talking about the 1940s. It was the 80s but I’ve never before felt like it was so long ago.
Still, it’s made me laugh for half an hour so it’s not that bad.
