Aside from the obvious, such as shopping, you can do your banking online, pay your bills, buy a house, list things for sale, sell goods you don't want, and a hundred and one other things. The computer is changing people's lives and the way we communicate.

Send and receive emails in a fraction of a second. Talk online through things like Skype, which is much cheaper than conventional phone calls. Store your images and make scrapbooks. Install photos from your digital camera and print them out just like you once paid for from the developer. There is so much you can learn online as well.

When my neighbout wanted some green tomato pickles the reipe books had nothing in them. Online there was a superb recipe from which one could copy the steps as easy as anything. He tells me now they are the best pickles he has ever eaten. Of course he wants more.

Forums are a great place to spend time chatting and then the social sites are abuzz with the millions who think to post just about every detail of their life and events online for others to read. And it's great for kids as well. Look how young they can start and occupy themselves creating web sites, chatting to friends and even doing their homework

Research shows that 47% of children surveyed enjoy Internet connection in their room. This reinforces the hypothesis that childrens' online activity is often done completely in private, with unlimited hours and without disruption. Of those surveyed 60% admitted to being exposed to pornography and some 30% or more encourtered sexual material that they hid from their parents. It's time, therefore, that parents get sensible programs like this one to monitor what their children are doing online and just who is talking to them.

      I learnt the basics of typing in business studies in high school and perfected it when studying journalism at university - I still sometimes find myself tapping on an invisible keyboard on my lap, which is how I practiced.
