Growing Up on PCs

It’s amazing to think what the youngest generation is going to growup like. My neice is 2 1/2 years old and in less than a month, she’staught herself how to start up the computer, start a particular game, anduse it. As recently a four weeks ago, she was still having trouble withthe mouse, but now that she’s made that connection, she’sunstoppable. And, get this, she can properly shut down Windows. She’sofficially surpassed my dad with her computer knowledge.

Of course, my question is: when will she post her first Pingresponse? -ram

I will respond in her place until that time comes.

And I'll take over responding for Robert.

I certainly won't let my chidren waste their outdoor play time on the computer. This generation is lazy.

Rob--The job is yours, but be prepared. Being as stupid as I am does not come easily to most.

Matt--You're totally right. Outdoor playtime should be spent with a Gameboy.

Without outdoor playtime how would my friends and I have been able to discover porno mags and bb-guns stashed at the playground?

Matt--That's incredible! I found two copies of Playboy once when I was working at Giant, but I was already 18 so it didn't matter for much.

There's a balance that can be struck between outdoor time and computer time... unfortuantely, I, personally, tip the scales the wrong way...
