    Seems you and are cut from the same cloth.
    I did grow up in an appliance repair shop.(the kind that fixed
    everything from toasters/vacuums to radios and tv's. Back before the
    term "television Repair Shop" had become part of the vernacular.)
    The experience primed me for the rest of my life.
    Haven't had anything in a repair shop ever. Either I fix it or it
    doesn't get fixed.
    From home appliances to the family autos, I service them all.
    Yup, pretty soon all the youngsters will be walking around in the rain
    staring upward.
    Heck, Whoever says that the original "Outer Limits" is "old" betrays
    their own age.
    That was one of my favorite shows along with "The Invaders" if anybody
    here can remember that one.

    I think I might be able to get away with calling
    both of you two "young pups" - still a bit wet behind
    the ears :)

    Nice memories though...

    bit more in knowledge.

    find all technology he knows had been replaced by a digital black box and a
    computer..... oops, that's already happening

    I've heard of an amusing anecdote given to a tech class I was in back in high
    school concerning computers.

    This guest lectuerer was woman who had given a lecture a few years back about
    the possible future applications of comptuers. She mentioned automotive uses
    when she was interrupted by a seasoned mechanic.

    The mechanic's final declaration of computers in cars: "Ain't gonna happen." -

    now the mechanics are called diagnosticians and use computers to test the
    computers.... "the brain is dead, Jim, but the Chevy still lives"
