Back in the day my father was pretty tech savvy throughout
the black & white and colour tv era and had no trouble with
the early vcrs. His abilities plateaued with the purchase of a
vcr with a bar code reading pen for programming recording times,
despite lessons and abc hand written instructions this thing had him beat.
We ended up replacing it with an excellent dad friendly model.
The same thing happened with the arrival of the microwave oven,
he got himself some super dupa chef special that beyond setting the clock
had him stumped. We adopted that beast of a thing also and got him the
classic two dial one button model.....

In later years this became his modus operandi for giving me stuff
without being seen to be giving us stuff.....

He did not like my first wife (the bitch from hell), we didn't find out just
how much until after his death, we found every birthday father's day
and Christmas card and gift we had given him rewrapped in a wardrobe.....
He had that good old Scottish stubbornness flowing through his veins..... :lol:
