Parents and Computers

Sometimes I can walk her through ticking a checkbox, but often she fails to convey what is happening on the screen and/or I fail to understand what she sees happening... Perhaps I should configure her machine for remote assistance because that would allow me to, uh, assist her remotely. :)

I made her an email-adress as well, so now once in a while I get an email from her, which is a lot of fun!
