When I said "I only make sure bets", I was indicating I am not a gambler, either. :D

Internet a limited resource? We've not even scratched the surface on this. The "pipe" that carries Internet traffic now can be expanded astronomically with present technology, and probably more with technology that hasn't been invented yet.

You're right about the stubbornness of old people. I'm one of them! I do spend some time teaching my peers to overcome their fear of computers. It really is a fear of revealing ignorance, an ego thing. It affects men much more than women. My "trick" for getting around that is to "barter" our expertise. I find something that they know about, and learn from them as I show them how their field of knowledge is presented on a web page. Works almost every time!
