I would never knock technology because without the thermionic valve, the electric guitar would not have been produced.
Me too Brokenvows, use it or loose it I reckon, and I love writing/drawing with pen/pencil…
Of course I write - just not pen and paper. I use a computer.
Cash always, but I do pay my grocery Tesco big shop bill in store with a card.
Personally even though I use a computer or my phone most of the time I still use paper and pencil for a few things.
I have a small notebook for just about anything which lasts me years but for projects and trip planning I have a spiral bound A4 notebook to scribble in, for example, today I filled two pages with notes and calculations for a printer project I was working on.
It is not that I use it a lot, I have probably filled about 20 pages (out of 240) in the last 6 months but sometimes it is quicker and more convenient than using a computer
that`s cheat writing
In what way is it cheat writing ?
You are pressing keys Besoeker,it isn`t quite the same as using a pen/pencil .
I am not criticing you i may add.
I often got told I sent you a link to your mobile. Trouble is my phone is 2g and only gets sms messages. Everyone believes you got a smartphone. I intend to keep my 2g until the service ceases in 2033.
It was a pen
Ahhh got it .
AFL is the same - at least at Adelaide Oval.
You cannot pay by cash, it is all card - either your physical card or your card on your phone.
I think we all have a card of some description July, but I keep mine for emergencies and pay cash wherever I can.
Exactly! I hate that all my medical info is on the computer. As soon as I walk in the doctor’s office, they are on the computer adding my information. I always think what happens if the system fails.
except some places, like OP and myself pointed out, you cannot use cash.
I work in a Dr;s surgery.
Information is much more secure than the old days of cards in filing cabinets
Well those places will have red faces and no business when the net goes down…
I think not July. Local scallies would have to break in to steal files, but computers can be hacked from anywhere in the world…And have been…Even our own NHS ones.
I bet they will take cash if the problem lasted more than a day.
not neccesarily break in - cleaners, staff etc could access files by just opening a cupboard, now of course computers are password protected.
Yes there can be computer hacks - but I think risk of local people, ie people you know, accessing your medical info is less.
