Yesterday, one of my friends, who recently started blogging with other Japanese blog-site, came to my house. I invited her as I wished to give her some tips for using PC. She took a city-supported computer class for a while and she said opening the blog was in the curriculum during the several months course. We have many these classes for variety of fields like calligraphy, flower arrangement, many crafts classes and so on. We sat side by side and both did our best for a one day's lesson. If only her pc could be connected with internet.
These were the small tips; some short-cuts (for copy and paste etc). how to open tubs and windows with right click. As she had already had "picasa" downloaded at the class, some tips for how to use it more like "collage". If I hadn't started blogger I wouldn't have known the site.
As I've already known through teaching English, helping others are not just for that person. I thought it helped me to put these things into my mind more concretely. I am not sure if this proverb is the right way of putting it but "He that gives lends". We say "nasake wa hitono tamenarazu" Yes, your kindness sure will be rewarded to you in some way later .
After she came home, I've made several more files in my favorites. Still have a long lists of the sites, whew. I always wonder how my friends have learned how to use pc. I owe T-company's support center a lot, they provide a free phone service. Haha, I was so amazed with the remote operation when I first had it. I might have been in their blacklist p;)
It certainly was a pc-day for me, I hope it won't be the cause of the nerve-wreck for us all, friends☆☆☆
