what is it about computers?

"A computer is a programmable machine that receives input, stores and manipulates data, and provides output in a useful format"

Yet we cosset them as though they are the bees knees, we personalise them to suit our fancy, use them for more reasons than I could mention, and cannot resist the impulse to try "Something New"
This will always lead back to my ancient post of "Tinkering"
Am I getting old, or am I just experienced enough to know that "if it aint broke don't fix it"
I see many people on this forum who have exactly the problems I had some years ago. I am indebted to this Forum, and wish you all a Very happyt Christmas

Where's the edit button when you need one?

I too am very thankful for all the help received.

Likewise -a very happyt Christmas. Delete key has DEL on it

I was referring to rawprawn's post - once posted, nothing can be done to rectify errors. I'm sure we were promised an edit function some months (years?) ago.

  compumac 18:06 13 Dec 10

Understood that. I had earlier today been on another website and posted a reply and then realised my spelling mistake(s) and was able to rectify those before too many people saw it

Sorry "Cote Du Rhone" fingers!
For happyt, please read HAPPY.

onthelimit, you are right I am sure this edit function was promised.
However, one never knows it may appear as a Christmas present on the 25th

At this time of day?!!

I no longer tinker (much). I think that's as much down to experience as age.

Merry Crimble all.

We eat early, and I do like a couple of glasses of wine. I find I cannot eat so well later, I think it's old age.
