    If my mum started using this forum I simply could not use it anymore. I can be myself on here but I can't if I knew my mum was reading every thing I said!
    I'm luckey that i don't have that problem then. My mum doesn'tt even know how to turn on a computer, let aone access this forum.

    I've stopped doing that now, I've been using ALT F4 instead. And also quickly copying what ever I was writing into the clipboard.
    oh dear oh dear - ALT F4 - why close a window when you can simply minimise it (Windows key + M - minimise all windows) or switch to something serious looking (Alt+tab cycle between open windows).

    If you want more tips and have half an hour to spare this thread: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/alabas...?thread=315996 is packed full of em

    I know what you mean.
    My mum didn't know that the read text option lets you read a text you recieved.
    And she doesn't have a clue how to send them.

    yeah my mum has no idea how to put her phone on keylock either - tho she has evolved to the stage where she can send text messages to me with PHONE ME written in big letters...

    Lol, it's the same with my mum. Although she can actually turn the phone on, she always has to ask me how to use it, even if I've told her thousands of times before!

    Why do old people always think they are superior to younger people, when they can't even work a mobile phone, a computer, or anything else invented after the first ice age?

    The best was last summer, when an oldish person I know had to make a phone call from her pay as u go 3210 (she still had the original £10 credit that she put on it when she bought it 2 years previously!)... she'd got the number on the screen, and wanted to know how to phone the number.......... blatantly ignoring the large green button just below the part on the screen that says 'CALL'

    Yeah, i know.
    I can honestly say i haven't met a single person who i would concider old, who can actually use their mobile phone reasonably well.

    Well, yeah, but they aren't important things though.
    I mean, who needs to know how to use a cooker?

    more important is the art of getting someone (gf/mum!?) to do it for you!
