    Haha, very amusing as we're currently expecting our first child and going through the motions of buying all this safety-commission certified stuff for the nursery. I talk to my mom a whole lot about advice & recommendations, and it's shocking how much has changed over such a small period of time!

    Well obviously, do all of that. However, take it from a father of two, your eyes and common sense will be your best defenses to protect your child.

    Best of luck to you and your growing fam!

    "Walk it off" - Best advice ever given.

    I miss those days. Not from any sense of nostalgia mind you, but rather from that nascent feeling of joy fostered by the pure, unadulterated freedom to royally screw up followed by a well-earned satisfaction in fixing my own mistakes. Responsibility invites independence; something so very few of the last couple of "generations" ever seem to understand.
    The newest computer can merely compound, at speed, the oldest problem in the relations between human beings, and in the end the communicator will be confronted with the old problem, of what to say and how to say it. - Edward R. Murrow (1964)

    Haha. Yep, heard it many times. From falling on skates on a concrete sidewalk to taking a baseball to the nads in little league, I'd hear my parents or manager say "Walk it off!"... that generation's way to say "harden up and Deal!"

    That was so true...

    Woah; wait! You are trying to trick us in to giving away our age aren't you...
    Just because I can relate to everything in that video...
    That doesn't mean I was a 70's kid! And just because I was born in the sixties...

    Curse you...

    J/K...

    The guy on the bike with the ramp was so me growing up...

    Heh, heh... Sometimes I wonder how I survived...

    Anyone besides me remember typing in games/programs from multipage long printouts of code in computer magazines?

    God, I was so happy when they started to add checksums to catch your typos lol

    It was a great way to learn coding though. Look over the Basic or Assembler or whatever you had just typed in, and start tweaking things to make it your own and help you understand the neat things you could do.

    1200 baud - Wow, you were high tech!

    My first modem was an acoustic coupler 300 baud modem that I build in a showbox (yes, literally a shoebox to hold the coupler and circuit board. )

    I remember when they first started selling 300/1200 baud modems, I couldn't believe how fast they were!

    Default C=64

    Although my C=64 still works I use emulators to play some of the old games on my modern computer. I haven't set up one on my Windows 8 machine, but on my W7 I like to play Autoduel sometimes.
