…reaches its climax, since this week they finally switch off the last pixels. I remember the slow days of Teletext and Ceefax pages, where it took about 3 minutes to load a page, and playing a game on it meant you had to clear your diary for the next 50 minutes. Bamboozle anyone? Those were the days , when subtitles were a nuisance (for my parents anyway – “Get that rubbish off the News, it’s too slow!”) and when TV listings only when as far as the next hour, and covered five channels.
Fun times : )
