New Digital Communication

The Railroad needed communication so Commadore Libby devised a new form of transporting information. This is what the the Eggheads call DIGITAL. Ones and Zeros. Ons and Offs. Click click space click. I met a Gentleman named Sam who has an idea on how to coordinate these digital pulses. He however wants to name the technique after himself. I balked. I believe it should be called Morse Code as my horse was called Morse. Now he never spoke in dots and dashes but het did dash and left some, dots. A horse is a horse especially called Morse. My equine friend always talked to me, but referred to me as Wilbur????? I will keep all informed by smoke signals until I learn the new technology.

Actually, the key is a treasured part of my collection.
I have some other pieces I want to share with those who can appreciate the history as I do. Imagine the days when you had no phones, tv's or internet......
Going to to the Western Union or Railstop to send a telegraph...
But then again no popups and computer viruses, and you KNEW your kids were "On Line"

I just had a conversation with The Boy last night about all the things his generation has that mine didn't: cell phones, computers, cable tv, microwaves, cd's, etc. How did we survive?????

Felt like a granny at 45. Sheesh.

I can remember back when I was a kid-I used to lay on the ground and look up into the sky...saying, "Im bored".

Now it seems there is WiFi at every coffee shop, hotel, library etc.

Practically, everyone you see in a car is either on the phone or watching tv.

Kids have Gameboys, Tamogotchis, Digipets, portable DVD players, iPods, PSPs all hanging around their necks to give them something to do....

As far as technology...holy Lord its gotten waaaaaaaaaaay out of hand.

I really miss those "bored" days.

The Boy discovered he can play games on my cellphone. Time spent on phone compared to time spent on PS2 bought for Christmas--10:1.
