"Quality" time at home isn't what it used to be, is it starwolf1336?

I'm a parent that has three computers set up and we all spend time in one room, saying "hey look at this", or "hey listen to this" .... then we start talking about [whatever] and end up leaving the computer room to just talk. Good stuff and communication with kids, aunts, uncles, cousins and the dogs.

Well said Jacee, you put it into a few more words than my quick reply.
It's not the end of the world to go without the Internet for a couple of days and spend time with family not everyone has the privilege of doing that.

Some of us can still remember the time before computers... When a normal family home had 1 (ONE!) fixed line telefon to all communications needs... When TV channels stopped broadcasting after midnight... When music was on vinyl LP's and nobody could even dream about a matchbox size device to put in your pocket when jogging...

I see a word that didn't get censored by the management.

We can remember, even the time before TV and telephones, and records were 78's.

Though the memories are fading.

I was just thinking about my parents
My dad was born in 1913 so he would have been 101 last month. My mom was born in 1914 and she would be 100 next month. Just wondering what they would be thinking about what is going on these days since they died quite a while ago. Anyone care to share?

Hey there. I am Sean, I just had a new computer delivered yesterday. My situation deals with my overprotective parents who I still live with. I want to remove the preinstalled commercial virus scan trial Norton but I can't because they tell me. I can but what am I going to say that they won't jump...

Why do my parents like Norton so much?
I used to use it, now I've switched to other AV software. I felt it was slowing my computer down a lot. My parents used to use it too, and I convinced them to try another antivirus, and they also agreed that it affected their pc's performance. What do you think is so great about it; it seems to be...

Parents are so cute!
Hi everyone. Anybody else here have a mom and dad that are, well, shall we say, just "not into" computers as much as the rest of us, so that when an ad for Windows 7 is shown on TV, they will literally ask, "So what IS Windows 7 anyways?" :D Hehehe. I love my parents dearly. But I think...
