Technology confusion

This morning I was going to put in one of those bargain-bin Sesame Street VCR tapes in for the girls to watch. It wouldn't go in the slot. I examined the machine carefully and found a CD inside there - a Norton Internet Security CD. It was wedged in the machine and quite difficult to get out!

So someone in our household took the trouble to take a computer software disc out of the CD rack by the computer, take it over to the DVD/VCR player in the living room, and attempt to jump-start it by inserting what they thought was a DVD - in the big wide VCR slot. I know this technology is confusing at times, but my husband really should know better than that.

we had someone in our office whose old Apple computer had a slotted CD drive that would "suck" in the discs; when they complained that their new PC's CD drive wasn't working, we opened up the front panel and found at least 15 CDs collected at the bottom. Then we showed her how to make the disc holder pop out. and this is at a university....

I hope at least your VCR was virus free.
