    The water jacket in our wood cookstove. I always think I should have a backup fabricated.:rolleyes:

    Of course, most people think I'm obsolete when they see me working a piece of wood on my shaving horse.o_O

    Musically speaking, TUBES.:D

    Agreed. At first I couldn’t think of anything (probably proving that my brain is obsolete), but manual transmissions in sporting vehicles certainly qualify.

    Are you referring to the Beatles' song, or, well, just yesterday?

    Well, currently the Mac El Capitan OS. It's no longer supported, and I can feel the writing on the wall where some applications will refuse to run in the near future. But I upgraded late last year, to Sierra (as HS was still not appearing stable). After a month of incredibly counter-effective and draggy interface, I actually went to the trouble of reverting back, with an old backup I'd saved. Fortunately so much data is cloud-stored these days, that I only had to sort through a few files to update manually. Still, about my least favorite thing to do - except upgrade.

    Windows XP, Cakewalk Pro, and my Roland VS-880EX. Essentially everything I use for music recording and production.

    I should clarify...someone (lots do) could do without amps, wedges, etc...not me.

    Obsolete things I can’t live without include a 2012 Mac Mini (recording Machine), most of my mics are long out of production, CD burner...etc

    My main acoustics were built in 1927, 1930, and 1950.

    My main electrics were built in 1952 and 1956.

    My main amps were built in 1959 and 1966.

    I like paper maps. My kids think this is crazy. To make matters worse, I realized when we were in Tokyo and popping out of a subway stops that I needed to orient myself -- I should carry a compass, too! Again, my kids say there's an app for that. Yeah, until your batteries die.

    Matches... Love to light a good cigar or pipe with matches... I've got $100+ lighters but I still prefer matches...

    Ipod! I've got lots of music on an older one that I run through a few different stereos around the house.

    I also like my plug in Drill. Plenty of juice for longer tasks.
