Nostalgia humour all at once. Ahhh.

Funny to note that everyone's phone nowadays would seem like HAL9000 in those days.

It makes me smile that his computer had less computing power than my flash drive

What is disturbing, looking back at this strip today, is the fact that although our computers are a thousand times as fast and have a thousand times the capacity, the software we use is a thousand times more bloated, not any faster, not much more useful and more often than not more aggravating to use the way you want it. I always feel victorious when I find ways to run my trusty, super efficient old apps despite the OS's insistence it can't be done.

The only thing I do not miss is dial-up and the scant content there used to be online in the early 90s. Today, more than ever, almost everything can be found and happens there, when it used to be only geeks like myself, and storing and maintaining backups used to be a massive chore. I dread having to transfer, and more especially, review and manage, all the data I've stored in the past 20 years on the hundreds of CDs that have piled up in my storage room...

I just installed a very old program on my computer and as part of the installation it had a window come up saying it was checking that the computer had enough memory, I thought; when this thing came out there was no such thing as a computer with enough memory for it, now, there's no such thing as a computer without enough.
