Why do I keep hearing "My parents are stupid" in these sorts of
comments? Just wait. They get smarter as you get older.

My father was NOT stupid. He could use several of the more popular
"word processors" (Wang being the last one he had used) but he could
NOT, for the life of him, get used to using MS Word. Or anything else
associated with Windoze. The command sequences just "didn't make sense
to him ("Why do I have to go push "start" when I want to shut the
system down?")
