You know when you are getting old when
I fitted out one of those in the early 80’s in Chester, its now the toilets for a bar. Also worked in the one deep below Manchester city centre in the late 80’s. What they have no doubt forgot is that there’s hardly anyone left that has been on a relay adjustment course or still has all the tools.Posted 4 months agocodybrennanMember

Interesting. I dont know of anyone who can still trim them.
Most of my working day right now is centred on decom’ing a chunk of old (but not as old as Strowger) DMS switches. Its challenging.Posted 4 months agomaxtorqueMember
The Mk1 Focus RS recently celebrated it’s 15th birthday!
I worked on it’s development, and it still feels like yesterday!
Here’s me, looking ridiculously young, with Neil Briggs from Ford (now of course of BAC – Briggs Automotive Company – Mono fame) with a Pre-Production RS at the top of Stelvio pass in Italy:

Working with kids keeps me feeling young, normally. But last year we had an open day on my birthday. My team got me a cake, which I couldn’t eat because of allergies, so I gave it to the students that were working for me. And this one girl goes, “oh, it’s my birthday too!” Exactly half my age. I wanted to kick her in the face.Posted 4 months agoaphex_2kMember
When you’re chatting to a copper while waiting to go on a job and he says he was born in 1993. After a few seconds of “hang on…. that means… err… wtf????”
Or chatting to someone about a music act and say “can you believe that album is 25 years old” and they say “Wasn’t born then”

That you’re staggered that people born this century are driving now.
I was going to put this as I realised this year whilst checking students provisional licences that I am getting old.
Saying things like ” wow, 2000 feels just like yesterday ” just gets a look of the student as if to say ” shut up ” 😀Posted 4 months ago
