    I think you're getting some rose-tinted cataracts.

    Just think about the hours of work time you waste each year answering e-mails? Or what about the detrimental effect that social networks have had on some peoples productivity (he says on a messageboard during work hours ). There's definitely more distractions these days.

    I'm not sure I'd agree with that. The abstractions we've added on over the years hasn't really improved any productivity (probably made it worse in fact). And I'm not convinced PCs are any more user friendly now than they were in the 80s.

    I do still miss "the good old days" though.
    Yeah, but it would be awful if we were still in them.

    I do actually miss old tech

    edit: though I don't miss programming on them. I'll take modern compilers over machine code on the old BASIC machines any day

    I missed the era where computers were scary and complicated and difficult to use
    Really? They frighten me more now than they ever did.
    Mind you that is the standard of programming rather than the machines.
