I guess that happens when you're 37 and you've been playing PC games since, well, since the PC was invented!
you got a few years on me but I do remember having to hit the shift key while dos was booting to skip loading some of the drivers so that I would have enough memory to run doom/heretic/rott.
I took a computer course last year at a community college and was mildly insulted when I heard/saw a kid installing XP laughing and gawking at 800 x 600. I thought I might be wasting my time when I handed the instructor one of my old pocket PC reference books and recieved a blank look. I'm willing to bet a cookie I was the only one in that class that knew what a .COM virus was and if asked I was probably the only one that wouldn't think of websites.
I feel old, I'm gunna go cry.
