Keeping up with the dot com generation
DESPITE his 70 plus years, Peter Dougherty admits he still feels like he is in kindergarten.
Mr Dougherty has just completed a six-week course conducted through the Clarence Institute of Learning and Research to get some basic skills in computing. He was prompted to take the course after realising that of his 14 golf mates, of which he is one of the younger members, only two did not have access to email.
"It has given me so much more information," he said.
"There are so many people you can contact and so much you can learn."
Mr Dougherty said he was still making a few mistakes, but after buying a new computer, intended to stick at it.
A new course, funded through the Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care, starts on Tuesday. For information contact Jeff Cook on 66461117.
