    That wouldn't work. I'm not on facebook, twitter or any of those 'social' media sites. My facial expression every time I read and respond to robot's posts is one of genuine bemusement. I often think that I should give him a break, but then I think if I did that, he'll never learn anything from the world of hard knocks. Kids need to experience some pain before they start to learn a bit of common sense (though some take much longer than others).

    Lol, Jim! The scary thing is that I think they may like each other! I mean opposites attract, right? Like Laurel and Hardy. It gets to be quite amusing indeed.

    Hi there
    the opposites thing though might be more of a Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde syndrome -- haven't made out my mind which is which yet -- or perhaps they both take it in turns.

    Yes, because my next new PC will be a tower/desktop PC. Not even a laptop, can you imagine.
    At the computer store they had maybe 50 kind of laptop and tablets of all transitional sizes. and only 3 tower PC. But tower PCs are custome made and don't need to stay on the shelves, save for the urgent purchases.
    Personaly I'm not exited by all these portable devices: input is input. The software is far more important IMO.
