After a few short years, I finally approached “the thought of” weeding out my tech drawers.

There are many that kvetch or become slightly confused about today’s onslaught of software & hardware choices. But was it much different back in the “Do I get the SE or the SE/30 with 32mb” days?

Today, a large portion of my desire to stay technologically current is so that my kids won’t surpass me. That day is undoubtedly around the corner and it’s also when I’ll be referring to myself as “your old man” to them.

It’s true that technology seems to move a little quicker today but while the jargon has changed it’s no more confusing than the days of the floppy.

After all, choice is good.
