100MHz FM transmitter from 1982, 25 Watts that we used for 3 months of non-licensed radio broadcast. A few coils in power amplifier are missing, and 2N6081/2N6082 (wrong marking) replaced the very expensive original BLY87/BLY89 (~$80-100 for a pair in those days!).
In 1997, when we still had 56k modems, if your website took 10 seconds to load, you lost most of your users. Today, Outlook spins for 20 seconds on a 300 Mbps connection, despite being in cache, and everyone is somehow fine with this regression.
This is without counting the lengthy SSO loop that we need to repeat every morning, because "remember me" is also no longer a feature in 2023, it seems.
Remember the times when "liberal position" was kinda like "I don't give a flying fuck what you do, whom you have sex with and all of that for as long as it's all between consentng adults, nobody's hurt and if I don't have to watch" and the "Nazi position" was "you'll watch what I say, you'll like what I say, or else"?
Guess I'm real old.... 🤣
