    Things that make me feel old...

    Stack of IDE hard drives here, my very first GB drive included!

    The death of Flash - I think I started using that on V3 in 1999 when it was Macromedia Flash.

    3) Even back in the day it was immature and childish.

    There you are feeling old, incredibly stupid and totally ignorant in one fell swoop.

    In my case, it's starting from the bottom, and I think it's time to shave all my pubic hair.
