i wasnt introduced into computers until 7th grade, and it was a windows 95 machine at school...

i switched schools and was completely behind in technology.. i had to stay after school and learn how to type

however, at work, we have files backed up from the beginning.. lots of crazy drives that were hip at the time.. i get bored and check them out..
