At one of my earlier jobs we had some really old tech. Green on black monitors, mainframes in the back and the gigantic old dot matrix printer that, if you didn’t know better, you’d suspect was somehow steam powered.
Everyday it chugged and wheezed and printed purchase orders, checks, and statements galore. And then one day, it stopped.
As much as I’d complained about our ancient tech in the office, I have to admit I was just a little sad when I saw the beige behemoth sitting next to the garbage can. Sad, that is, until this cartoon popped into my head.
I’m sure it’s sitting in some landfill somewhere as we speak, but I like to think of this cartoon as a last little joke we shared.
