Computer Assistance

This is so true!

My parents are finally understanding that they aren't really saving money by holding onto a computer for 7 or 8 years and I've finally had to let them know if they don't update at certain points, I just can't help them anymore. But once I get them to move forward, they pick good equipment. I also just ordered a new router for them to upgrade their wireless network. I think explaining the viruses and potential hacks and malware that newer software and firmware helps prevent is finally making a difference. I will, however, always treasure Dad's manual (gear-based) adding machine.

I hear you on getting parents to update instead of use you as tech support! Anyone who has a gear-based adding machine needs to watch a video of the actual working Babbage difference engine in London.
