Listen up whippersnapers, some of us "older people" have been tech WAY longer than you and have transitioned just fine. My first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80, where you had to write your own programs, while sitting outside in the snow....

I write my own programs all the time (Computer programming minor here) hehehe

Remember the manual "Teach your computer to speak basic"?

oh my god I'm dying
