62 years old computer enthusiast. Sure is odd how some things are named. That mobile cannon was named a "tank" to confuse spies during it's Great War development in Britain. All communications headed "water tank". "Computer"? At first it was, but now so much more, the world at your location and an aid to all endeavors. Mind expanding artifical memory bank, teacher, entertainer, partner in business both legitimate and illegimate. What a Revolution we are experiencing, individually and as man-kind. And I was just getting used to the telephone....

They are indeed wonders and wondrously bedeviling aren't they? No other invention of human genius has ever been so successfully turned to so many disparate tasks. Mainly, though, I use mine for blowing away animated zombies with high-powered firearms. :whistle:

Computers may be as important to civilisation as was the wheel.
