a time before

Now I know I work in I.T. and should be enthusiastic about modern technology, maybe it's my age but:
I find myself yearning for a simpler age, before mobile phones, personal computers and definately before political correctness.
In fact I think I'd like to go back in time and work on some of those massive engineering projects of the 19th Century, living closer to the land, with a much slower pace of life and real ale that really is/was real ale.
Only 2 problems, the time machine isn't quite ready yet and if it was I'd probably end up working down a pit or catching some long extinct disease for which there would be no treatment at that time.
Of course the only thing I'd really miss is my Xantia

Computers have their uses but I dislike them when I get a text from the monitoring machine at work informing me that half of the server room is on its way down so I have to go in early. Had a long weekend as well so was looking 'forward' to work even less.
Castles and Pyramids, that sort of thing fascinate me. How on earth they built them I dont know
