11/28   In pine, how do I add an attachment so that my parents can see
        in-line JPG picture in their AOL mail (instead of them having to press
        that download button)?  -kid with newbie parents
        \_ not sure, but let me tell ya somethin' about PCs. After my
           parents worked their butt off to pay for my tuition, I decided
           to be a good kid and got them a new sub $899 computer w/net.
           On the first attempt to teach them Win95 and AOL, AOL for some
           reason took up all the VM (200 meg) and the computer swapped
                                  \_ another luser who thinks virtual
                                     memory is about using your hard disk
                                     as memory.
           like hell. After a while, the computer hozed and I had to reboot.
           My parents looked confused, and I had to explain what happened
           and why I had to reboot. They looked even more confused. I guess
           this whole "user-friendly" shit isn't very friendly for the
           older generation who don't understand the difference between
           Windows, Office, internet, email, Start/Start Programs.
           \_ I'm sure my parents are older than yours and they weren't that
              stupid about it.  I think you just have dumb parents.  It has
              nothing to do with age.  Nothing about being over 30 makes
              anyone innately anti-technology or technophobic.  It's a gene
              pool problem, not an age problem.
           \_ why is it that there exists this generalization that if
              you're an older person, you automatically are a complete
              dumbshit who no longer has the ability to read and
              learn new material?  it's not like computers come from
              outer space or anything.  for the most part, i hate computers,
              so i do the bare minimum to set-up and run my own computer.
              even that type of lazy, unconcerted effort give me a running
              unit.   anyhow, the kind of stereotype doesn't make any
              sense.
           \_ got one word for you, dude: iMac
        \_ use linux. ride bike. problem solved.

                   read the Solaris source by using less to view the SCCS
                   history files too.  -alan-
