Helping a Senior Netizen

pexels-photo-877695.jpegToday’s Perfect Moment is helping my Mom overcome a technical hurdle. Her internet wasn’t working and through dogged perseverance, I was able to make it work again.  Facebook is once again accessible for a senior netizen.

In my fantasy world, I am a computer savvy person. I easily coast the internet highway like Count Zero in that great Gibson cyberpunk novel.  The truth is far from it.  I am an intermediate user on my best day.  That I have a blog, a couple of facebook pages, and an Instagram is not quite a miracle, but it’s closer than I feel comfortable admitting.

So, I feel pretty good that I solved the elusive problem–my mother’s computer put itself in airplane mode…and then hid the airplane mode switch. It reminded me of the time someone put the TV on the secondary audio channel and took the batteries out of the remote.


About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.
