And there are many people who can use facebook who don't understand the shift button, and who can't use certain functions on the keyboard. And it's not only about using the internet it's about internet safety and using the internet for search engines and the like.

The myguide courses that are run are effective and useful for people of all ages.

They'll teach you what you need to know to use a computer properly and safely and at the end of every module you'll recieve a certificate to show your achievements, and it's all done in a friendly relaxed environment, with helpful volunteers to support you every step of the way.

Yeah there are still many people in western world that still don't get the basic things related with computers and internet. Probably govt. is doing not enough over this issue.

The Government (and this is both parties) have set up training schemes, offer courses, offer assistance in buying computers and even gave them away to needy families with school age children. They have legislated on broadband access and ensured that most communities have access to the internet either at home or through libraries.

The Government is meant to do that, govern, not spoon-feed us from birth until death.

My windows are dirty, mainly because I can't be bothered cleaning them, but it's infringing on my human right to look out of my windows.... we should have government paid window cleaners.... oh and my shower plughole needs cleaning whilst their at it..

Sometimes we just have to do things for ourselves, stop talking, stop moaning about how it doesn't get done, and do it ourselves.

The alleyway behind one of the shops is always getting rubbish left there, and often it's by people who live nearby too lazy to dispose of it themselves. If I'm going near the tip with stuff I just throw it in, if it's a few bags I'll just shove it in with our waste bin when it's collected (the amount B&M overcharge us for taking the rubbish the bin is going to be FULL), and if more people just did the little things the place would look better and maybe people would stop dumping and take some pride in the area, themselves, and their lives.

Well that went off on one, not quite sure how I got there, but you know what I mean (nothing personal intended)
