Just an older guy trying to understand computers better. I use computers at work everyday in a medium/large org that employs a tech 3 days per week. The tech's job is to allow us to do our job and not worry about how computer's work so much.

We just use work applications and have no access even to add a printer which is all fine by me.

I first owned a Mac and never had to learn much on the tech side. My friends all owned DOS machines and became experts.

Am buying my first android tablet and will use it on the internet. Most of my home computer use does not involve internet. In fact I rarely use a home computer on the internet but finding more software today only works online which I think is a bit scammy.

I usually use a cheap low end cell phone for my minimal persinal internet use.

Thanks for reading.

Welcome to BC !


After you have hung out here for a while you too will start worrying about how computers work !  I take your point about software only working with an internet connection but, perhaps not so much on tablets, there is plenty of software which will work entirely on a computer without a connection.

Thanks, I just don't want to be one of those guys that learns enough to really screw my computer up but not enough to fix it.
