  • Please say goodbye to my Sainted Aunt Martha

    Posted on November 16th, 2019 at 07:56 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    Those of you who have been reading my stuff for a while no doubt recall my Sainted Aunt Martha. She’s the prototypical kind and gentle lady who doesn’t understand computers but wants to use them anyway, and needs to be protected in a no-interaction-required sort of way.

    I’m sure everybody has a Sainted Aunt Martha in their families.

    I’m very happy to announce that MY Sainted Aunt Martha just passed comps for her Ph.D. in CS. So I won’t be using her as a role model any more.

    I do, however, have an uncle who uses computers but doesn’t understand (or want to understand, or need to understand) them. Have to think of a name for him…. Suggestions?
