Yes, computers were certainly an improvement over typewriters.

By 'tablets' I guess you mean mints?

No doubt that the availability of information has been an incredible jump.

Someone once said that knowledge was not power, power is what you do with the information. From that have come discussions asking "then what?" in the sense of a fine line between saturation and actual application.

"Sometime you understand what they do and how and sometimes you don't."

Do yo mean technically or socially?

Yes, there has been development on many levels.

How do computers cause pain?

Well it's enabled me to do more, I can now shop and keep an eye on my finance through the computer. It's widened my world through forums like this, so I can see how the other half lives.
I don't go anywhere so it's meant I can talk to people. It means I can keep my brain active rather than just sitting knitting.

I too have been involved with computers in some capacity for many years, not as long as some but my first brush with the beast was in the early to mid seventies.

Since then I've seen them broaden horizons for some, and narrow them for others, it depends on the person involved.

They are now an integral part of my life, and they do make things easier, if I need information it's there at my fingertips, I haven't called directory services for a phone number in years, when I have an issue that needs research it's all there too.

But, it's a tool like any other, So apart from the borg implants and the regeneration alcove in the bathroom, they have not affected be much at all

I met my future wife online from a Pen Pal site in August 1998. Caused me to uproot from England to Indiana in September 1999. So yes a computer can bring life changing results. I have also found at least 3 jobs online. Ripped my CD collection to FLAC files and MP3 and use Winamp to operate as a jukebox so I can listen to music.

My thoughts exactly, I was told that you needed a thick skin if you were going to take part in forums and newsgroups. This was when I first started with a computer in 1998, but this place is more like home from home plus you learn so much along the way.
