    Landlines with fax machines attached to them

    I love how fax machines are being phased out gradually - they're a PITA.

    Black and white tv Colour came in when I was about 12, (yes I am old) and those color tv's were expensive so one didn't appear in our house for years. Oh and taking said b/w tv to a tv repair shop when a tube would blow.

    I could corner this thread. I was about 4 when tv came to Australia. I remember we had a black and white tv, and you had to turn it on at the wall, and then the set, and then wait for it to warm up before you changed the channel, using the channel selector. No such thing as a remote, only channel nine, and then the abc. and the tv shut down for the night with "God Save the Queen". oh so many things. marie.

    Sniffing the purple ink on your paper handouts at primary School because it smelt so good!

    Taking the fluff of the record needle.

    Positioning said record needle on the particular part of the record to hear a specific song.

    Only being allowed to take 'keeper' photos because developing film cost a bomb!

    Shrinkies in the oven, usually old Samboy packets.

    Using a plastic Coke bottle container to make a terrariums by cutting the neck of the bottle and using the black bottom bit to seal it.

    Officially feeling ancient now.
