Minnesota Computer terms.

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

For years when the computer came out the terms used made absolutely NO sense.

Living on the farm I Northern Minnesota...the terms I was hearing gave me all kinds of visuals that did not make sense.

My Brother just sent me a list of what we felt the meanings of these terms were when we first heard them.

Some of my rural friends will have to agree that this will bring back a few visuals from years past.

I hope this helps people understand my lack of computer savvy.

Hi William - I get the sense that it's cold up there on ocassion. Very, very funny (maybe not quite as funny as the hazardous material one you did a few days ago - but that one got me in trouble). Thanks for a good laugh this morning.

Love the descriptions. How do people who are new to our langugage EVER figure out what anyone is talking about?

I don't know. But I know it's getting chilly in here, so I had better go "log on."
