Oh, I dunno. I work with a wide range, 20's to 60's and don't really see as big a difference in abilities as you might expect.
May be that it also depends where you live and which 60 year olds you are meeting. In the woods, 60 is hopeless. ATM machines are difficult and knowing the difference between Mozilla, Chrome, Safari and IE is frankly never going to happen for most.
And our children are getting more technologically sophisticated by the SECOND.
That's probably true. All I know is that the ones I deal with all break the same things in the same ways. They all get wedded to a few software tools and methods and are extremely resistant to exploring alternatives. The younger ones are slightly more flexible but not a lot.
Flexibility is not a common trait. My theory is that lazy is the factory default on all God's creatures.
RG, I don't work with anyone in that regard, all I have is anecdotes, but those anecdotes are things like how my mother, 5 days ago, had no idea what a GIF is, or why those pictures "move" on my "website". Bless her heart.I will even say that I'm starting to feel like a geezer when I read some of the computer/web stuff my young (20s) cousins are doing at their jobs. It is like they speak a foreign language and makes me cry and then have phantom arthritis pains and gout attacks.
Bless her heart.Ooooh, what you said!
Well, unless your cousins are actual computer geeks or work in graphic design, I doubt that they have more than a very general idea what a GIF is or how the animation works.
A few years ago, I spent a few hours troubleshooting my mother's computer. She was trying to print a document, which resulted in 8 blank pages of paper.I checked the printer, printer drivers, the printer settings and even deleted the printer, which required reloading the software. No good, it was still doing the same thing. I ran a virus scan and a malware scan. Still no fix. For some reason, I examined the document and realized she had somehow added eight blank pages below the last line. When I deleted all the blank pages, the problem was fixed. You live and you learn.
HAHA! I thought you were going to say there was no ink in the printer.Shit happens and then you die. If you're lucky, there's a lightbulb moment between what happens and death.Not always around here.
