I’m OK Then. I Use Computers A Lot.

The interesting thing about growing old is that it doesn’t bother me any more. I have reached “acceptance”. I am slowing down. I can do more things but also more slowly. One worry is how I shall fade out. Will I be sharp as a whip or dull as a wet noodle? There’s good news, though,

Old men who use computers less likely to get dementia • The Register.

Chuckle. I suppose it’s another case of “use it or lose it”. I really have to go for a walk…

    Maybe it helps your mind but your body goes to hell if you do too much time with the brain sucker.

    I think I’ll take a walk now.

    It’s not just computer. All activity can decrease the chance to get dementia. However i don’t know are e.g books more effective than computers in that purpose.

    Good article, notice on part:

    Computer users were also asked: ‘What do you use a personal computer for?’ Participants could choose one or more of the following answers: word processing, internet, email, games, other.

    Which coincidentally represents 99.9% of computer users these days.
    FLOSS and Linux would be a warm welcome to this individuals.
