    4. A (Seen it before)
    5. B
    6. A (just a guess)
    7. A (Peanut brittle?)
    8. A (Probably the precursor to gel!)
    9. A
    10. C (I did that when I was a kid)
    11. C (Crippled FDR)
    12. C (Named Desire :wink
    13. C (Just a guess!)
    14. C (Would have done a lot of good too!)
    15. A (Just a guess)
    16. A (?)
    17. B
    18. C (WWII Song)
    19. C (The Supremes weren't around yet...so I'll say The Esquires)
    20. A (Easy!)

    I wonder how many of our members even know what a mimeograph machine was or that milk used to be delivered by milkmen or what a church key is.

    There was nothing "mini" about an old school computer! :grin:

    I remember a computer we had at work the size of a refrigerator. Within 5 years it was replaced by a single chip half the size of a bic lighter.

    Re: Remember the 90s?

    Thanks for posting this Ltrey33, this brings back some great memories!

    The things that stood out to me the most were, Pogs, DarkWing Duck, and Garfield and Friends.

    I remember when I was little and use to live in Virginia, EVERYONE use to play pogs.

    And Darkwing Duck and Garfiend and Friends were two of my favorite cartoons. :thumbright:
    In the P.J.'s, my blend tape plays, bullets are strays
    Young bitches is grazed
    Each block, is like a maze, full of black rats trapped
    Plus the Island is packed
    From what I hear in all the stories when my peoples come back, black

    I know, but that's what they called them back then. Compared with the mainframe computers that took up a room or two, I guess a computer that "only" took up a couple of cabinets seemed relatively "mini" to them. I remember when the first "micro-computers" came out and blew peoples minds (the good old Apple II); now we just take them for granted.

    Makes you wonder what the world will look like in 50 years.
