The introduction and development of the PC and WWW has certainly had an enormous impact on the industrial world, warfare, education and on a personal level well the skies the limit. Playing games with someone on the other side of the globe, email instantaneous contact, audio video contact with friends and family, access to so much knowledge and information the mind has an endless supply of detail. As one who was born when the phone and radio was high tech sometimes the new gadgets are a bit awesome particularly with what the bad guys can do. With my PC I am able to watch TV while I do other things. With the software I can simply dictate to my machine and it types what I say or gets the program I ask for.Information galore at the touch of a key. On a more personal note it serves me well if I feel a bit isolated although I avoid the chat lines . The Pussers sites are great for someone who has been on the beach for a long time and I have been contacted by "old ships".I don't strike many familiar names though and wonder how many are still around or simply cant be bothered with the new gadgetry. I have a program that blocks the nasties as I have no interest in many of the things available on the web. There's anough of the good stuff to keep me happy. I must admit, I would be lost without my PC and although I refuse to admit addiction. How do other R&Rers view the web? Do you go for any nasties? Could you manage without your PC now or are you addicted?
