(I am over this unfinished post. Time for some clearing out)
In spite of getting our first computer in about 1995 and connecting to the internet, I am not very good with computers. I know some bits about them and I have often been called on to help people but my knowledge is quite limited. I really don't know much about the working bits. I used to pull things apart when I was younger, to find out how they work. I have now lost confidence in doing such things.
I think it was also about '96 when I bought my first mobile phone. Just a year or two later I was sending text messages. I'm not cross but I just wonder how I, who was almost on the cutting edge of technology, have fallen so far behind. People not born when I sent my first text message can write a message on their phone four times faster than I can. Their nimble thumbs flash across the phone pad, while I stab, or drag, away with my forefinger. Ok, I don't make too many typos and I do use caps and I do punctuate, but even so, the kiddies are miles ahead of me.
Apparently my camera can wirelessly send my photos to my computer. I tried and it did not work. Here is a critical point. If I really cared a lot about wirelessly sending photos from my camera to the computer, I would work it out. Google helps, and there are always kind people out there who will help. But it wasn't something I really cared about that much. I just thought I would have a try.
At times I feel quite overwhelmed by technology but there is no real reason why I should. I pick and choose the bits of tech that I feel I want or need.
