On Kenju this morning she talked about getting her first computer and how did she ever live without one.......it sure struck a cord with me. I got my first computer in the early 80's by asking my hubby to buy me one for Valentines. I didn't have any idea what I was going to do with it but it was the up and coming thing and felt I needed to learn about it.solitaire...yahoo, no shuffling required.
Much later I learned how to do a spreadsheet for the Union dues of our men that I needed to keep track of and even later yet......I did the payroll for 20 men. That was heaven after doing it all by hand. I am sure the men were happy too because there were no errs:)
Then came the Internet...........I wanted to learn how to do that so took a college class................after two weeks of a very boring class, I dropped the class and simply signed up for AOL and I have been using the Internet ever since. I do all our travel reservations, I have done our family tree, I wrote the book via the computer, keep our business books, blog, play games and on and on and on.............................
How about you? When did you get your first computer and what was your first accomplishment?
