You win, yours is bigger than mine. As @xenopeek so succinctly put it "How did we get this old"?
Without trying to highjack the thread I suppose, like most old timers, I can't help but envy today's up and comers who have so much more information and technology available to them. Then again, what if our parents had had what we had? What if Alexander the Great had had strike bombers? What if the Egyptians had had the crane?
Trying to get back on-topc I'll add that it is not new to say that change is inevitable. In the modern world change is both obligatory and rapid. To remain relevant software developers and users need to be aware of this. Us old farts may bask in past glories but we need to accept that what was, is no more.
