I remember dad bringing home a 386 and I couldn't install some game off 3 floppies because there wasn't enough memory.
You know what I was able to do though? Go outside most of the time and be a normal child, instead of developing a hunchback at 9 and demanding a mobile phone and fucking iPad at 13. I'm getting old.
Growing up, with regard to TV, video games, and eventually computers, my parents forced me to go outside every day, weather permitting. I'd complain at first, but after being out there for a few minutes I'd be having fun and wouldn't come inside for hours.
Of course, being 26 now, we didn't have a computer in the house until I was 12 (aside from my Dad's crappy work laptops), and I didn't get a cell phone until I was 16 and it was a Nokia in the pre-texting days, so it wasn't really a distraction.
I can't even begin to think of what it's like being a high school teacher right now.

At least last time you Brits got pissed off, we got punk music out of it. This time, it'll probably just end up being embers breaks
