Computers - You Can't Understand or Live Without Them
Now, I consider myself fairly computer savvy. Actually, I think it is my love of puzzles and somewhat linear thinking that makes me a good "computer problem fixer". That, my seemingly infinite patience with everything technical and my tenacity to solve problems. However, I have to admit being rattled to the brink of lunacy on the odd occasion when everything on the computer insisted it was connecting to the internet and yet, I could not surf, check email or quite frankly do any of the day-to-day things we now rely on the computer for. I wonder what in the world did we do before these wonderous machines? How did we get that instant information fix? The simple answer is we didn't. The better answer is it didn't matter. In truth we have become a society completely and totally dependent on machines - especially the personal computer. Forget Big Brother. Say hello to your little buddy. Oh, and please stop threatening to throw it out the window - you know you'll just go out and buy another.
