Computer Tech Tips
was recently reminded of the time, when I was driving my daughters and their friends up Springfield Road to Fondulac Park. On our way we saw a man struggling to ride his bike up the hill. With no traffic, I slowed down to cheer him on. The kids joined in. The man smiled and “dug deep” as they say, and actually did make it up that steep hill! Years later, I saw one of the boys that was in the car that day who reminded me of that story. I laughed and said, “Yes, I remember that guy laughing at us but he made it.” The boy said, “You were always a cheerleader.”
I’m trying to keep that same challenge of encouraging people to not give up – but this time with Computers. Believe it or not, computers make our lives much easier. Oh sure they can be frustrating at times because there is so much to be done and sometimes the computer refuses to cooperate. No matter what your user level is, computers can be exasperating.
Hopefully, these articles will give you hope of becoming a computer super-user or at the least comfortable with your keyboard. Here are a few website links to help you along:
