This chat thread seems to be full of very nice people and I'd like to be a part of that. So, I'll start off by saying, "Happy Easter to all of you."

For Easter I posted on Facebook a really hilarious sepia-toned photograph, taken probably in the late '40's or early '50's, of someone in a really (unintentionally) scary and creepy Peter Rabbit costume holding two little kids who are extremely upset and crying uncontrollably. I would be terrified and crying too!

Even retarded people have some learning capacity:

I am at the library and I just learned how to use a flash drive. With the help of the librarian in charge of the computers, I saved a document I had created to the flash drive, then used the flash drive to attach the document to an email. I know I can do this by myself, because I was alone when I attached the document to a second email and then clicked on all the right stuff to be able to safely remove the flash drive.


I am really thrilled. I believe a lot of problems we ancient fossils have with computers are because of our belief that it's beyond us, when in fact it may not really be beyond us at all. Right now I feel that what I did is pretty simple. Given the right teacher with a little patience, I could probably learn a lot about this stuff.


I am aware that normal people will find my post incredible. But no, this is real, and I am able to share this because of the anonymity of the internet. I am thrilled because in this very small way, I no longer feel that the entire world has passed me by and left me in the dust. Now perhaps there will be other small steps.


The stuff I am used to seems second nature, like creating documents with Word (using bolding, centering, different spacing, different font sizes, etc.). I've been doing that for years. Also, I use email on a daily basis and have done so for years. I can create groups from my address book, etc. So my starting point this evening was not absolute zero. But it often feels like I am at absolute zero in the present-day world.
