The VCR box said it was plug and play. So simple a child could do it. It took 3 hours to set it up. It made me wonder if we are becoming as technically illiterate as our parents? Gar and I are members of the last generation to grow up without computers. We managed to do without one for so long, and now, you would have to pry it from my fingers before I will give it up. Generation VCR is there hope for us? My parents still cannot program their own VCR, or cell phone. They probably never will be able to. They lack the VCR gene. They were born too soon. They are very accomplished in many other areas, just not technically gifted.
I can operate my sophisticated DSLR camera, print my own pictures, figure out my 4 in one printer/fax/copier/scanner. I managed to set up two blogs, [ Blogger blogs but still ], and now can even manage to link to another blog. I even understand a little about what HTML code means now.
