It's amazing that the old fogies can even figure out how to post!
It not the figuring that is a problem, it is the doing. Of course, for some folgies that is less of a problem for others, because they have been working with computers for decades. On the other hand, someone like me, that was entering the folgie years before even touching a computer it's a different story. However, since I never had any formal training for this, I'm satisfied with the progress that I have made.

I bought my first computer in 1995. Once I had it up and running I clicked on a mysterious program named "Word".

Then I sat and stared at the (apparently) blank screen for five minutes waiting for it to do something.

That is the same year that I bought my first computer, but since you are a college student, obviously you were decades younger than I was at the time.

LOL... PCs booted up to nothing but a blinking cursor on a black screen. It was settled long ago in court but if it wasn't for Apple, there probably wouldn't be Windows for the general public. The graphical interface was around but it was Apple that put it on a PC. Imagine doing everything you do now but from the command prompt with nothing but a keyboard. No task bar, no desktop and certainly no icons to click--Just a black screen. There was no click because there was no mouse. If you wanted music or movies, you listened to the radio or went to a theatre. (Not theater as my spell checker says.)

It was us "old fogies" that made it easy for you "kids". Pass the favor on so that those behind you won't have to go through the "drudgery" you do now.

I had just turned 36 when I bought it 16 years ago.

50...That pretty mature for a college student. Considering your previous remark, and the fact that I really don't know what means, I think that I will take that with a grain of salt.

Hey Profdlp, I spent a lot of time on the North Coast except on the other side of Cleveland--Euclid, Mentor, Concord then later Akron before moving "back home" to Texas. I used to work at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation (IT department). I'll always remember the good times at Put-N-Bay. The girls still go nude after dark?

It sounds like you really should get out more. Either that or carwiz was hallucinating.
