What are the 1970’s & 1980’s Computing / IT skills “our grandkids won’t have”?

Whistling into a telephone while the modem is attached, because your keyboard has a stuck key
	 - something I absolutely don’t miss.

Having a computer in a grimy wharehouse with 400 days of uptime & wondering how a reboot might go?
