Prof Slatton and His No Techno Zone

Broken Telephone Lines Are Silent

Broken telelphone lines are silent with many voices trapped inside.

Not that it matters too much to anyone but me, but I find the era of computers and search engines to be daunting.  This is particularly true for someone who chose the world of fine art as a profession.  This is surprising, because I embraced technology when I was a kid.  I took apart anything that had wires, including parts of my house.  My mission was to inspect, back-engineer, pry, prod, and basically discover all those hidden mysteries inside my machines.  I later studied electrical engineering and tinkered with my own circuit designs.  Now that I’m almost reaching retirement, I’m faced with the age of computers, websites, and search engines.  I thought I could conquer these like I did my old pocket watch, just take it apart, pull out a few pieces, and see what functional part changed.  Unfortunately, the hardware part of computers is much easier to grasp than the software concepts.  Just when I thought I had licked HTML, now I have to learn about CSS, where everything is hidden in its own secret box.  I’m posting this to express how much I hate living in the cyber world and would trade it all for a nice safe cave, if I knew I could still feed myself.  By the way, what exactly is an “app?” – Prof. Ralph Slatton – Blackhand Press Templars
