You're correct on all accounts, especially the hardware one. I can't stand using my Raspberry Pi 2 anymore. LoL. I've spent quite a lot of time on BBS' and rummaging fidoNet and fsxNet since my shoulder surgery (still in the sling) and while I absolutely love BBS' the message system is still the exact unchanged pain it's always been. I started putting up a BBS using Mystic but I dunno what it'll amount to yet. The nostalgia is very strong these days.

We're nostalgic for the old technology because we associate it with the way we felt during its heyday. I can assure you that after you spend ten minutes basking in the glow of an 80x24 green screen and a computer running at 1 MHz, you'll be ready for your favorite laptop again.

I remember a time in IT when it was about helping people use tech stuff to make their lives better.   Now its mostly administrative overhead that we do. Customers, if you have any time left over.

 

So glad its almost over.

Well we're just tickled pink that you're here with us and I hope you'll keep hanging out here long after your shoulder is recovered. And may you also have a quick and complete recovery.

Thanks! Yeah, I kinda like it here. Cool people, laid back, I don't plan on going anywhere. Might even drag a friend over. The shoulder is healing well. Almost at week 4. Physical Therapy soon I imagine. 

On the subject of Wistful Nostalgia ... I was on the Agency BBS last night just snooping around fidoNet messages when the sysop (Avon) pulled me into a chat. That hasn't happened in about 25 years. XD  Extremely nostalgic.

All of the people I know who have done physical therapy, combined with all of the people I know who DIDN'T do their physical therapy, have all agreed: you need to do your physical therapy.

I myself did months of it after breaking my ankle seven years ago, and it totally helped. (Until the arthritis set in, but it would probably be worse if I hadn't done the PT.)

In my case, when i destroyed my arm, if i didn't do PT id be non functional in that arm.  ( went above and beyond that they expected.. i refused to lose upwards 90% of my arm motion. Before i got to the first session i had already got 75% of it back by pushing it )

Now, its "just" pain ( getting worse by the year.. but its to be expected ).. but it moves like it should with 99% range ( ok weaker, but range of motion is the same )

Oh, I'll totally do the PT. I've seen him before and he's really good at what he does. The damage was just too much for him to be able to take care of alone.
