    Was just in the shop when I was telling the shop keeper I was having problems with my desk top.
    When this old boy in his 90's asked me all sort's of questions a just could not answer
    abut gig ram bit's hard drives I suddenly felt very old and out of touch with modern times.
    up till abut two years ago I didn't even know how to switch on a computer.
    and at times struggle
    but having a computer has changed my life wonder watt I done before computers.
    how has computers changed your life

    Computers changed my life more than most I suppose.
    At school I was all set to go into civil engineering until a c*cked up school merger meant I had to drop the most relevant GCE "O" level subjects. Luckily, a year later, our maths teacher taught us some rudimentary programming as a filler at the end of term. That led to a career in IT at a time when computers were just becoming mature enough to be used as serious business tools. When I look back at some of the stuff we were doing in the 1970s it's amazing to realise that computers simply hadn't been used in those ways before.
