help

My mum's a technophobe. How do I convince her not to be scared of the internet?

That's a tough one. It took me a while to get over the fact that my LCD television was trying to kill me in my sleep. Eventually, I realized it was only trying to kill my roommate and not me, so I felt safer and relaxed.

Best of luck to you and your mum!

Perhaps if you left the internet, there would be nothing left for her to be scared of.

Godspeed.

She shouldn't worry. I think she could take the Internet in a fight.

Maybe your mum knows something you dont know. Maybe there's something to be scared of after all

Well the best way to welcome an older relative to the Internet is to have a Lemon Party.

Check out Google for more info on how to setup a lemonparty!

That, or if you don't like lemons I heard blue waffles are very nice.


Or, if she doesn't like windows pcs, check themacuser.org.

She's gone home now. She says she's going to use her redundancy payout to buy a top of the range Apple computer
