        I’m probably not alone in suddenly having a lot of time on my hands.

        One thing I did was to clear out a drawer of 25-year old software disks.  One of them was a full licensed version of Corel WordPerfect Suite 8, and, do you know, it had a full manual!  Does anyone remember what a manual was?  The manuals alone weighed in at 1519 grams – 3 lb 5.6 oz in old money.  Doesn’t it now seem inconceivable shipping all this paper around?

        Also a five-disk version of Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia.  Did I ever look at it?

        Does anyone else have any similar discoveries to share?

        Keep you hands washed.
