The Schmidts argued on everything big or small anywhere, anytime. Charlie never enjoyed visiting them together, but because they were family it was sometimes hard to avoid.
On this particular Sunday, Charlie was drawn to their home not because of the Schmidts company but because of their new computer, a powerful piece of hardware.
"Come in", Maria Schmidt told Charlie flustered as she opened the door to him.
"Darn it Maria, I can't find Internet Explorer. You always move things to where they are not supposed to go", cried John Schmidt to his wife.
"I did not move anything!!! This is just like with your tools. You blame me for moving them and they end up being in your tool chest" Maria yelled back.
"How am I supposed to go on the Internet?!? You must have done something when you were playing Solitare."
"SO NOW I CAN'T PLAY SOLITARE!!! OH AND WHAT..CAN I SIT ON THIS CHAIR OR WILL THIS TOO PREVENT YOU FROM GOING TO YOUR @!!@!%^$%$! INTERNET", screamed Maria.
Normally, Charlie would quietly excuse himself and leave, but he could not take it anymore. For them to argue on the day of their new computer, that anyone would be envious of (including Charlie), was disgraceful.
And so, Charlie shouted at the top of his lungs, "GET A HOLD OF YOURSELVES PEOPLE!!! Use User Accounts!!!!"
For a few minutes a rare moment occurred, the Schmidts were speachless.
When they thought it was safe to speak again, they looked at Charlie timidly and asked in unison, "User Accounts?"
If more than one person in your household is using a computer then it is a good idea to set up user accounts. This way each user can use the computer without interfering with any of the other computer users in your household.
Windows, MAC OSX and LINUX all have the ability to set up these accounts.
On Windows, click on the CONTROL PANEL and click on USER ACCOUNTS.
