I never touched a computer until 1994, when I took a job in a restaurant that had daily menu changes...I was introduced to the wonders of "desktop publishing", on a VERY old computer.
I had no contact with the internet until 1997, when I finally "bit the bullet", and bought a computer for my apartment so that I could do the menu changes from home, and fax them in. I got a Compaq, 3gig, 64mb,...it was decent at the time, especially since aol was so slow anyway.
I was 28.
I have since upgraded to a PowerSpec 80 gig, 1.7gh 512 mb,...she's fast!
And this past fall I got a laptop, so that I could take it to work with me, and that's even faster than my desktop!
It's all on a wireless network here in the house, and at work. And the broadband connection changed my life!!
