My new DVD's
BradPaula
You are not alone, One Spare Part. I've tried but I've all but given up on the new technology. Got rid of my mobile phone, refuse to get or learn how to use a smart phone and just get along in the technological world on my boxy old desk top. Enough is enough. I want to remain human and not one of those poor souls who cannot live without looking at their palms while walking, eating, or pretty much everything else. Luddites of the world, keep banging the rocks together with glee!

I only got a mobile because my agency insisted, and then they shouted at me for never turning it on...

Sounds like my spouse. His personal phone is my cast-off "dumb phone". He only has an iPhone (for work) because the people he works for insist on it.

DVDs are great, if you are able to play them. But if you can't, alternatives must be found.

I write with pen. I'm a super-fast-ten-finger-typist (years of office temping in between film jobs) so I can type stuff quickly, but then I print it out and edit in pencil.

I love my smartphone (or 'mobile device' as they're now called) - it rolls into one all the things I used to carry separately - diary, address book, Walkman, still camera, video camera, maps of the Underground, train & bus timetables, London A-Z, Nintendo Gameboy - oh, and mobile phone. But I also have an old Nokia that only does phone calls and texting. The battery lasts a week on a single charge, and it's brilliant and simple, and I love it and won't part with it. Although I tried to get a new battery for it recently, and the phone shop guy got out his box of ancient batteries, but the phone was too old even for those.

I too prefer books to Kindles, though - books don't need batteries, and I can read them in the bath without fear of electrocution Grin

i write in pencil in exercise books, my old word processor used to crash and delete my work, so I only trust pen and paper for first drafts

Not just that - things stored on old tech (floppy disks etc) can be irretrievable. My first word processor was a beloved Amstrad PCW. Did so much on that - editing submissions for Horizon zines and newsletters, typing up the Horizon Letterzine - as well as writing my own stories. Luckily I had the foresight to print those out, because several house moves and computers later, they would have been lost forever. I've no idea what happened to those Amstrad floppy disks, and I doubt there's anything that can read them today.
But when I recently wanted to revisit one of those WIP stories and get it finished, I was able to get the printout out of its box file, and get straight to work...
