Signs of missing the point on a past technology

A friend sent me the Craig's list advertisement here. When I first read it, I had a sharp intake of breath. Then a long, outward sigh of recognition. Someone had missed the point. In selling antiques there is always someone who removes the old varnish and spiffs up the ancient piece of furniture, thus ruining its antique value. Well, this one is either a very long pull of a very long leg or someone who has missed the technology bus and is still running along on roller skates.


  1. what a hoot! I wager he or she is dead serious....probably has an advanced some of the folks I work with (my "betters" and "superiors").....

  2. Ha, ha. Yeah. I used to get a negative kick out of the military concept of "superior officer". I always felt that "higher ranking" would have been a much more explicit nomenclature.
