A new poll has examined the mundane tasks that we no longer do, and the list might make you start to feel all nostalgic for the 1990s.
Getting photos printed, ringing the cinema for film times and using public telephones all now seem to belong to a bygone era - as do setting the VHS recorder, popping into the travel agents to book a holiday and looking things up in an encyclopedia.
The survey was commissioned by a company called www.mozy.co.uk which sells online backup services, and asked people what they no longer did because of technology.
