I'm doing some research about computer training courses for older Australians and I am interested to know if there is interest for courses that train in computer hardware (pulling apart a PC and rebuilding it, repairing faults).

Looking forward to hearing from you!
I have learnt on the run when something went wrong with my computer. My now computer technican son talked me through a reformat of my previous computer from Vic once. After we finsihed he said 'congratulations Mum, you have just successfully reformatted your computer.'

It was hammered into me when I was in primary school, so that's probably why I have a hard time figuring out what she means sometimes.
Kids these days don't seem to be taught the 3Rs...as we called it.
No they don't Sparkles--they seem to use acronyms all the time these days, even when they are talking
