i don't know jack about computers
i often refer to myself as toulouse lowtek or rip van cyberwinkle
i am able to log on to a computer, access gooble get to esmb, log on and using only the index finger of my right hand post my writing. i am unable to utilize most other features of this board. i recently made a substantial upgrade of my computer skills by posting my first smiliee, a deeply heartfelt "big cry"
there is "method to my madness". obviously the computer revolution is a profound technological advance for mankind. as any cogent observer can readily deduce i am a person of sufficient intelligence and creativity that if i had chosen to discipline myself to the task i could have several decades in the past entered this arena and made myself a multimilionaire. in fact i often muse on possible computer aps (and have been doing so since the sixties) and i have a backlog of good ideas and if some ambitious whelp wants to sit and brainstorm with such could probably be VERY prosperous within three years
i am a person of conscience and for 42 years an ordained member of clergy. it is incumbent upon me to consider the impact of computers on our humanity and spirituality and to make camp with those who are to some degree (for lack of a better word off the top of my head) are disenfrachised by computers or intimidated by the awe they have for cybernetics
i intend to remain personally unskilled with these here newfangled contraptions infernal devices that they are ( 90% of america's current money supply exists only in cyberspace? YIKES!!!!!) and do no more with them than i could do with but a pencil and an adequate supply of paper.
that is a lot
may a just and merciful god grant that it shall ever be
