    Why must an (un-trained) senior citizen give up learning PC enjoyment upon
    the reading of strange words at the outset of perusing a PC manual or an
    advertising piece of a PC literature pamphlet? High school 'drop-outs' from
    pre-WW II, Post-Korean War, etc., etc., has well deminished. Many, many
    seniors (today) want to learn... but the PC manufactures won't give in even
    though they are making $$$$$
    on the sale and use of the item. (There is more... I hope you have gotten
    my point into the low lit tunnel of 'smartz' for the vendors.

    If you are writing from the U.S., many cities and towns have Senior Citizens
    Centers, and many of those offer training in the basics of using computers;
    some offer more than the basics. Try calling your local Senior Citizens
    Center. There's a national program called Senior Net, too, that offers
    training and assistance to seniors.

    Your question does not seem specific to Microsoft Access database software,
    the subject of this newsgroup. However, the only "general computing"
    newsgroups are likely to be USENET newsgroups. One place you can search for
    an appropriate newsgroup is http://groups.google.com, where newsgroups are
    archived, but where you can also read and post to USENET newsgroups (and
    some of the microsoft.public... newsgroups, too).
