I remember when going to restaurants you would be asked "smoking or nonsmoking?" and would be seated in the section you chose.

1. When one couldn't take a telephone out of the room where it was installed.

2. When a phone was referred to as a "telephone."

3. When you couldn't buy a phone; instead, you had to rent it, and wait for it to be installed by a representative from Ma Bell.

I remember this computer. My friends father worked with macs right from the beginning. I only remember we used the drawing program. When the machine started up I seem to remember we had to type in a code on a black screen to open the program.

I remember when cable television companies used to encrypt the extra-cost premium movie networks & also the pay-per-view networks by using a system which distorted the video signal, showing a picture on the TV screen with wavy, colourful lines which moved across the screen, but you could still hear the audio from the show, and you could only watch the networks by using a cable de-scrambler converter box that you leased from the cable company. I also remember when those premium networks occasionally had "free previews" on weekends, where they came in unscrambled, and they would display a telephone number on the screen for you to order the network.

I remember when I used to play Plug and Play games on my old Magnavox CRT TV set.

8" floppy disks
When the "computer room" had to be below 60F otherwise the machines would overheat.

I remember the days when there were no video games at all.

We played pinball instead.

I was a kid before CDs were a thing and we never had neither cassette tapes, portable CD player or even radio in our first car (which wasn't old at the time) so I was bereft of that memory despite having lived then.

I remember the time up until Wednesday when my mom could listen to the radio in her current car, before our dumb authorities forced through DAB + and having the FM net shut down. They're always quick to enforce stupidity. :evil:

I remember Lørdagsbarnetimen and all the exciting stories I listened to.

I remember Halvsju, Blikkbåx and Midt I Smørøyet.

I remember that well. It wasn't that long ago. I also remember smoking was usual on planes.

I remember was the NES was new. It was such a novel thing. I dreamed, thought and played SMB for a few months!

I remember when the cordless came, and how strange it was not to have a particular place to stand when talking in the phone. It was freer but also strange.

I remember when things generally lasted way longer than their expected time.

I remember when kneippbrød cost 5 NOK. It wasn't that many years ago either.
