@batye Not sure if the all-in-one is so old? What has replaced that? Speaking of old technology, when I was working in an office at a technology pub, I happened to open my AOL email and the "You've Got Mail" blared out. Everyone just lost it, they were laughing so hysterically. But I see nothing wrong with using AOL mail. I also have a Gmail account.

Remember age is a Number--yes we have certain things we have to accept--however we should and need to always be open while cherishing the traditions--but the future is where we live the rest of our lives!!

Re: already!
Oh yeah? A few years ago, I read about keyloggers for typewriters. I tossed out an old IBM typewriter not long ago. It was so heavy and I had nowhere to keep it. I have regrets. I doubt it had a keylogger, but I do wish I had it still.

Wow! I bet it was very fun to use back in the day. I enjoyed typing when I was younger too.

There is nothing wrong with being "old school"--the need to retain a sense of humanity is at the heart of all I have underscored throughout my deliberations over the last number of years.

Re: already!
@batye There could be some truth to that. A typewritten letter or anything manually typewritten doesn't get stored in a database, but neither does a handwritten one. Unless someone decides to take a picture of it and save it.
