We’re looking for a friendly student (preferably a young man) that would be willing to visit two elderly, listen to what they are trying to accomplish and then assist. They have a computer used for e-mail, word processing and some Internet. From time to time, things stop working, or settings get changed, etc. The immediate needs are:

  • Programming the GPS in their new car
