I spent many years with ready access to techs; they discouraged us from "playing around" then calling them when we had it really screwed up. It was probably part job protection and part reality. Now I am in semi-retirement doing health & safety consulting. I still interface a lot with my computer; the big change is no tech. I know my way around most software in Microsoft Office but when anything goes wrong I am in trouble. I just got a new desk top loaded with Vista. Letís just say it has been a real challenge to my serenity.

They say you can't teach a old dog new tricks; I don't buy that. As a person that spent years teaching adults it comes down to motivation. An adult will learn what is useful to them. I am motivated to learn about my computer system. For those of you that are light years ahead of me, please tolerate the dumb questions that are coming.
