  • You tell people you don’t play games on your computer but really it’s because the games don’t actually work on your computer
  • Your computer manufacturer doesn’t have a website anymore
  • You are still running Windows 3 because you just can’t get the drivers you need
  • Your kids would rather read a book
  • Visitors to your home often remark “Oh, I remember those” whilst pointing at your computer
  • You load up the word processor then head off to make a cup of tea whilst you wait for it to load
