FOWC with Fandango: Tribute

Solothurn 05.04 (59)

I read tributes every day in the newspaper for someone that did something that will forever be registered in human memory, and deserved are the tributes, but what about the still remainders. Those that are victims of daily stress.

I am thinking of the golden oldies. There are no exceptions in this world. If you do not have a computer, then you should because life without the necessary software is no longer so easy. Mr. Swiss and I grew into the system. We are both golden oldies now, but we had our methods of how to pay bills, order stuff, all online. It seems that there is a permanent need to update various systems and make them more sure against the cyber thieves and so every month, if not week, you are confronted with something new. Perhaps you have a new scanning device, you might have to recognise objects on photos (the captcha syndrome) or of course your passwords must be safer, longer, more complicated, and you are told not to write them down. It could be that someone finds them and your money is gone. You are expected to learn it all by memory, when you cannot even remember what you should buy when shopping.

So this blog is a tribute to all those golden oldies that have to get to terms with this new way of life and can do it, even if their grandchildren or children have to be at their side to help. They are the real heroes who never give up and battle with the online problems. I should know, I am one of them and so is Mr. Swiss.
