Mother Finally Set Up

Whew… Long day on the phone with Mother today. I am trying to get her into the 21st Century on her computer setup. Doing it long distance doesnt help. She was actually very receptive and ignored my occasional impatience.

She finally upgraded from AOL to a broadband connection. She hooked up with Verizon, but in their infinite wisdom, they gave her website access to her email. That’s just not the easy way to do that, especially since they have POP3 and SMTP servers. She now uses Mozilla Thunderbird to get her email and loves it (I think).

Anyways, time for the family to send her more email since she should be more responsive. Now time to get those junk mail filters working and finish her Firefox tutuorials.
