Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm Scraps:

I don’t know any Macintosh that was a tower. But I never had a Mac; that Mac I used was one of my friends.
Avatar 10:44pm Andrew S:

actually i think it was an se30, after looking up the models. It seemed much smaller in my memory, probably bercause im looking at a damn near wall size screen nowadays
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Scraps:

Coel, I can’t believe I still have the picture, passed down through the computer ages.
Avatar 10:45pm Andrew S:

there were no graphics, i could play chess around the world though and video games like angband that just used symbols

Avatar 11:09pm Andrew S:

no diaries now they just blurt everything out social media
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm coelacanth∅:

if i could do it all over i'd start a diary from early and keep up with it, just to remember the timeline of everything. i'd call it a journal though, to be cooler.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm coelacanth∅:

...or i'd call it my "memoirs" and publish it
Avatar 11:10pm Andrew S:

yeah i called mine a journal when i was a kid. my brothers who were barely literate found it and mocked me for years
Avatar 11:11pm jeff-m:

I just started a fishing log (diary). It's fun to look through and remember the weather, tide, time of day, lure, etc.

i'm a dork.
Avatar 11:15pm Andrew S:

with the tools now coelcanth kids (or anyone) does it. I dont think its as dorky now. It was then though I used to write down all the books i read and movies i watched when i was a kid. Lists were fun but really only to yourself, nobody else really gave a shit :)
Avatar 11:17pm still b/p:

Friend of mine a year or two ago burned all her journals dating back to teen years. Said it wasn't a bitter act, just a shift to finding other ways of seeing, grokking, moving.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm Scraps:

My late wife Velma started a journal in her early twenties and kept it going to her death. Tiny tiny writing, using a fountain pen. She built up a library of, I don’t know, seventy books? I have them; when I die, they’re going to her favorite niece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm coelacanth∅:

oh i agree, Andrew -why would anyone else care in what order i got records or anything else; but i've tried to remember countless times. to me it represents a type of evolution in my life that i know the basic timeline of but i'd like the details.
i too made lots of lists as a child, but i stopped writing down the records by the time i was probably 13.
Avatar 11:20pm Andrew S:

That will be a wonderful thing for her niece. I hope and Im sure some people still keep diaries, i was just being cynical.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm coelacanth∅:

Scraps that's crazy! 70!
Avatar 11:22pm Andrew S:

yep coel thats exactly what I meant. I didnt mean it was a waste of time, its a nice way opf looking back on things, I widh id done the same because I can barely remember what i had for breakfast these days :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm Scraps:

I should ship them to her to read, at least. I can’t read them; still too close.
Avatar 11:25pm Andrew S:

At least preserve them. The online stuff is just ephemeral. And it's not as genuine, you were speaking much more intimately in a diary I think than now when you feel like you have an audience
Avatar 11:26pm still b/p:

I hang onto photos of myselff more often now. I've found long gaps from earlier in life where there just aren't any. And for memories and just the hell of it, I'd rather have some than none.

Avatar 11:30pm Andrew S:

of course in 3 generations were all forgotten anyway but hey lets keep things upbeat :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm coelacanth∅:

i've never gotten rid of a single photo, and i've taken 100s of 1000s of 'em. i rarely let others take pictures of me though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32pm melinda:

I've kept journals for the last 20 years or so, nice to have a written timeline now that my memory is crap.
Avatar 11:32pm Andrew S:

I used to hate having my picture taken, I was always behind the camera. Now i encourage it too bad im older and uglier
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm melinda:

I like the Tractatus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:33pm Daniel Blumin:

When my fambly left the USSR, the parentals had to pick and choose what to ship and what to carry and packed a suitcase and stuffed them full of stuff including letters they wrote each other as teens. The fella that promised to get the suitcase out was never heard from again. Not quite upbeat, Andrew, but there ya have it.

Avatar 11:42pm JakeGould:

@DanielBlumin: Yeowtch! If it means anything, I managed to save some deep family photos—pre and post WWII—by in one case stealing a pile of them from a relative who had lost their mind. And another batch of photos was returned to me when another “stable” relative decided it was better to send them to me than getting them tossed in the trash.

Anywhoo! LIFE IS WEIRD!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

Daniel that's sad...very common of course. i always am so sad for people who lose things like that in fires and floods. it's only happened to me to a minor degree.
then again once in a while i remember about a particular shoebox full of letters or a briefcase full of my first attempts at writing songs and realise it must be gone, and i'm okay.
Avatar 11:46pm still b/p:

I mentioned in comments before the recent local article in which a reporter said, "While cellphones have made photography commonplace today, few people owned cameras in the 1940s," A baffling statement that's just about as false as it can frikkin' be.
Avatar 11:48pm Andrew S:

Im enjoying this set a lot. Dont make me put kodachrome on my turntable
Avatar 11:49pm JakeGould:

And I hope my “Yeowtch!” wasn’t too… Light. Genuinely feel sorry for anyone who has lost anything like that. Best of wishes in regards to that in whatever way there can be.
