Computers have managed to take over aour vocabulary, with some everyday words becoming specific to computer usage.

Find out what they meant before computers arrived on the scene.
An application was usually for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano!

Memory was something that you lost with age
Compress was something you did to garbage
And if you unzipped anything in public
You'd be in jail for awhile!

Logging on was adding wood to a fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to your commode!

Cut - you did with a pocket knife
Paste you did with glue
A web was a spider's home
And a virus was the flu!
