Old Age and Modern Technology

This poem may mean nothing to most people, mainly because there probably aren't three people on the site who know what a 286 is, but, the way computer technology goes, I need to get it posted while there may still be someone who remembers Pentium processors.

This digital world fills a lot of great needs
But it really puts me in a fix,
With its Pentium chips and its gigahertz speeds,
While my mind’s still a 286.

Hey! We're on the Intel Core 2 now, not Pentium! ;-) :-P

I had to have someone explain this to me. I thought it said 256 as in colors.

I've often wondered how people my age (I'm 26 right now) will handle the rapidly changing technology in their golden years. We've been so used to it in our younger years, but will that affluence now translate to affluence then? Time will tell.
