Looks like Mum is getting afraid of future phone bills so she finally managed to send me several e-mails yesterday asking me, each time, to answer each of them so as to know if the previous one went through *giggle*
She obviously does not master how to compose an e-mail from scratch with a title, my address then the text. She understood she still could get by by simply clicking on reply… I anticipate e-mails in which the original subject will be found at the extreme end of long chains of Re: Re: Re: Re… *giggle*
– Will you still receive my e-mails once up there? (My address is @ Yahoo.fr).
– Of course (what's the use of explaining what a webmail is and confusing her with technicalities; it works period).
She has a dial-up connection so I know she's connected whenever she writes her messages.
The day she'll understand she can write me longer messages off line, using text pad for instance, then copy/paste them will be something major.
I just don't know how to explain it whitout loosing patience. *giggle*
She and I function the same way after all. We don't have that much energy to waste so once we find a way to get things done, we stick to it and slowly progress from there.
It works, period.
