ex-job-ex-pat 0 Posted January 4, 2008 Share Posted January 4, 2008 I am far too young to be a silver surfer. I am computer savvy, I can solve most problems myself, I can take a graphics card out, put a new one in. I once took a chip off the mother board and accidentally bent the pins. Only cost me about €120 to repair! I can solve most software conflict problems. I can delete drivers, download new ones and install them. I can send/receive emails. Wow! I can change a PSU in a computer without then cracking the mother board. I am a webmaster! So - where is this going? This is the time of year where we send lots of greetings emails over Christmas and New Year. I know lots of "silver surfers" and they will all reply - most SS's love email, they view it as techno magic. My point is coming - It is the real technical people I don't get replies from. For instance: I email my ISP to ask them what my IP is doing on an email blacklist - no reply. I email my IT high flying old friend from Milton Keynes - don't get a reply. I have a theory, - the higher one is up the IT ladder, the more difficult it becomes to respond to emails. The silver surfers - they are the best.
