It's really too bad this comedy act posing as a thread was under such a

misleading title. I almost dumped them before reading! Bethany's is a

voice of sanity in an increasingly jargonized and polarized society --

and I used to do software tech support! It's little enough understood

that each computer domain becomes its own world ("PC" -- ambiguous enough

these days indeed, logically meaning just a personal computer but more

usually found in "what do you have, a PC or a Mac?"; those who are hooked

into networks, usually at work, have yet another terminological overlay;

some go thru a university but others thru commercial providers, etc.). I

say let's send the Bethany/Larry show on the road to perform at computer

I'm certain you computer literates are sick of reading how little I

know about all this. But if someone can just help me get started ...
