My mother-in-law is about 83 years young. She couldn't care less about computers. However, one day she asked me if it would be possible for her to play a game of solitaire on the family PC. She sat down in from of the CRT and I went over the basic mouse movements with her. She wasn't a bit intimidated and plugged her way though the game after getting used to the mouse. She satisfied her desire to finally use a PC to play a game that she had always played at the kitchen table. She hasn't been on that PC since, as far as I know. The point being is don't sell the older folks short - if they have the desire to do something they usually can.
