I tuned in to Jeopardy tonight. I like watching that show occasionally because when I get an answer right (or is that question?), I feel smart. Not being a natural brainiac, I get lots wrong, but I also learn a few things. Like tonight, for example. The final question (or is it answer?) was about the nation that has the .af domain. If I had been one of the contestants, a great big ?Huh?? would?ve been printed on my card. I didn't realize that it existed, let alone know who it belonged to. The only guess I could come up with was Africa. Turns out the nation that has the .af domain is Afghanistan. I feel good that I learned something, bad about being so clueless.
Maybe I?m just too old for today?s Jeopardy. I?m not up on the latest gadgets or lingo, and I don?t understand a lot of what is talked about online today. If any of you do, can someone please explain to me what an iphone is? If you can, and I can understand what you?ve told me, maybe I?ll want one. If you can?t, then I?ll continue to check in on Jeopardy. Maybe iphones will be one of the categories.
For today though, I?m happy that I learned what nation has the .af domain. Just knowing that I could provide the answer if someone were to ask, in casual conversation, if I know what country has the .af domain, makes me feel very clever indeed.
I?m on my way to getting current with the internet. Hopefully, things will wait until I catch up before changing again.
