This cartoon recently caught my eye from The Daily Drawing http://thedailydrawing.com/.
Only pre-millennials will understand this.
I am willing to put my hand up and am proud to call myself a member of the Gen X squad. As a child of the 80's I most certainly got a few pencils out to rewind my mix tapes. Back then I never would have dreamt that those early first steps in innocent data recovery would eventually see me travel the globe and forge a career in large scale corporate data recovery and data storage. In fact, I performed a project in Ethiopia in the mid 2000’s to recover the countries collection of oil and gas data stored on old 1980’s tapes and found myself rewinding tapes by hand - in a fashion not unlike the cartoon shows.
I’m sure everyone over the age of 35 has a few of these babies around their house with their favourite tunes on them. If I look hard enough I am 100% confident that there is a Top Gun soundtrack on cassette tape lurking in the back of a cupboard somewhere requiring the pencil treatment. Thank goodness for Spotify I say.
