@Cushla, a few years ago the whole family was involved in a similar project, to build a house in some needy country for some needy people, and we got to see all of it. I hope that’s what happens this time too…
And I’m really glad that Jan Eliot is spreading the word that you can be old and still be able to learn to use the computer. Too many people go to their children to learn about computers, or to some local expert. Then when they have bad experiences, which happens all too often, they conclude that it’s their own fault, and they must be stupid.
NOW HEAR THIS!! Just because someone is an expert at DOING something doesn’t necessarily mean that they are good at EXPLAINING it!! So if you don’t understand, look for someone who knows how to explain - a teacher.
Someone like me, for example, who can understand how someone can have difficulty understanding some computer concept, and can also understand how to help them understand. Clear? 8o))
