  1. That is hilarious. Do you think they’ll figure out why no one signed up for the course? I can just hear them talking about why old people just aren’t interested in learning about computers.

    • “Please send all completed application forms for the Adult Literacy Course to…….” !

      I don’t think they thought that one the whole way through?

  2. You are very funny Grandad and you know you’re an anomaly and why we love you. Just so happens I just drove 1400 miles to visit my 85 yr old Mom for the Holiday and she is all sorts of tickled that I showed her the You Tube. You would have thought I invented it with how she went on.

    • An anomaly?  A few of my readers and a few of the scribblers who I follow are a good bit older so basically I’m just a spring chicken.  So you now have your Mom hooked on cute kittens doing silly things? Heh!

      • Humph. Every time I type a comment here I get an error message that says my comment is spam. Perhaps the yewtoobs doesn’t like me to keep talking about them. 

        • May I apologise on behalf of the idiots who released an update to a bit of this site, and fucked the whole thing up!  Their software has been removed until such time as they have fixed it properly.

  3. Hey Grandad you can talk to me, I’m in Australia! I am also 58 and know how to use a computer, so that stuffs up the tv programs statistics.

    • Are you the poor sod who all the Irish grannies and grandads call up on Skype when they learn how to use it?  You have my deepest sympathies. 

  4. Hey Grandad,I,m 67, and i have a toshiba satellite, an hp desktop and ive just fixed up an old mac pro so know it runs Yosemite… two raspberry pi,s, who do these young dirigibles think started the computer malarky

    • Welcome Robbo!  Working off an Acer Aspire, with a backup Packard Bell [Herself uses my old Toshiba].  I dumped my desktops as they were too old and clunky.  All run Linux.  Also run a little network around the place with about 8Tb of storage [at the last count].  Don’t have a Raspberry Pi, but then you’re a year ahead of me so there’s still time……

  5. You know, I distinctly remember something about us “old wrinklies” inventing the Internet and the World Wide Web as well. Come to think of it, I believe we invented something called the “desktop” computer and the “laptop” computer as well…

    …or maybe I’m just getting old and delusional.

    And that item on your “steam-television” didn’t include a toll free number to call as well as a web address? Or is that obsolete thinking on my part?
