    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian Is it VW or do you always think of me when you're haggling? :-)

    As one of SEVEN children who used to travel from California to Tennessee every summer for family reunions: this is NOT that far off how we traveled, minus the rocking chair, and the fact ours was larger, ugly green with wood panels. and our dog was a Chihuahua! BEST memories of my childhood. Before the interstates were lined with fast-food joints and tourists traps.

    #5 Thought of you today, @Alan Geller. I'm haggling on a 1978 VW bus and two 1975 Bugs. Looking for a new restoration project.

    This was me in my move from Chicago, Illinois to Sacramento, California when I worked at EXEL and was running the HP SMO Distribution Process earlier in my career. I should get a royalty here???

    The connection is an awful lot of time re-winding only to find the tape had a kink in it! Still very good fun though.

    #10 More than writing on the label, we used pen for straightening limping tape in one of those wheels :)

    I remember the 80€ 245Mb Mp3, the revolutionnary Mobile play of the GameBoy, the 5mn waiting for the VHS to go back to the beginning. What a time.

    Come to think of it, I still remember my first computer that had a hard drive. It was a 10 mb drive. Yes, 10 MEGAbytes. People were saying I would never fill that beast.

    #14 I remember my first 14.4 baud. It replaced the 9.6 which replaced my 300 acoustic coupler. Yes, the one that you actually stuck a phone receiver in.

    I remember running dual cassette tape drives for boot up to connect to the BBS at a blinding speed of 14.4 baud. Lord help you if the Master Cassettes unwound in the drive.....an all too common occurrence.

    Michelle is spot on! Many's the time I remember having to fix loosened tape with a ballpoint pen. I also remember that these cassette tapes got easily stretched, resulting in some strangely distorted sounds coming from the cassette player. 🙉 #10

    When the ribbon of the tape came out the bottom, you'd stick the pen in one of the wheels of the tape and twirl the pen round and round until it was tight again. Or you could completely rewind or fast forward the tape this way too. Yes, I had a jam box and yes I had jelly bracelets! :)

    @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian. Wow Paul. Things have come a long way - or is it that we have come a long way? @Javier beBee. I do know how the tape and pen actually go together but I can't spoil the fun on the post.! I woul d often use a pen for the "correct" purpose when I was younger - much younger.

    The pen is to write the name of the songs on the tape? :)

    Here's a hint for those who don't know what a typewriter is: The ball point pen was NOT for writing a name on the tape cartridge.
