I'm making progress, I think ... I found out just a few minutes ago what a *browser* is! It seems browser is my *connection* to the internet. I have Mozilla Firefox and, if I understand this correctly, it is a browser/connection to the Internet. Tom says he uses it all the time for his downloads, except when it is an update from Microsoft and then he uses Internet Explorer. I have never used Firefox for anything, didn't even know it could be used for anything! I stay with Internet Explorer to go online, and get to this forum.
I downloaded the game from an email from Plimus. I have Outlook Express for my email. I bought the game over at JustAdventure and then received the email from Plimus Sales.
I was 56 when I saw my first home computer when Tom bought it as his newest hobby in 1980. As an electronic technician he worked on industrial computers all the time. Anyway, I'm using my age as my excuse for being so dense about computers, considering how long I have been using them.
