I confess to knowing sod all about computers, but I must say I really couldn't cope with being trapped behind one day in, day out.
Couldn't agree more - as there is always a net connection wherever I am I connect remotely into our own servers whilst waiting for stuff to install - reboot etc.
I used to love computers - now I would far rather lie under my LandRover tinkering!!!
Fortunately things are starting to get to the stage where I will be able to do more directoring(running the company) and less actual problem solving - I hope!!!
