I consider myself lucky in having been in the workforce at the right time to learn about personal computers as they moved into the work place and came into common usage. I was able to learn computer technology as it was developing. Today's kids and young adults have grown up with computers, so computer use and terminology is second nature to them. Unfortunately, many of these young people have... read more
