Just stop it.
He's dealing with Family. When you deal with family,especially older family members, you just roll with the punches. They have a limited ability to change, and a limited ability to learn completely new information. You have to realize that and work within the boundaries. Their naivety and ignorance of the system becomes a requirement, just as setting up a network onsite at a business may have requirements.
I used to think my father was difficult when teaching him things on the computer. Then I tried teaching my mother how to use a tablet to look at Google street views of various places. Sweet Jesus I thought I was going to kill myself. But I sat there, smiled, and hammered away at it.
Because....She's my Mother.

Every time I'm forced to anything more difficult than looking at someone's posts on facebook ( and i include actually posting in facebook in this group), using a tablet makes me want to punch my face. EVERYTHING is harder to enter on a tablet.
If tablets are the future of computing, the future is a giant tablet, smacking you in the face, forever.

I eventually grew tired of debating the whole "but does it even matter". Eventually, I simply decided to do/vote whatever I think is right. Do the correct and moral thing based on my beliefs. In the long run, it may not change anything. But I've stayed true to myself, and hopefully if enough people do that, things may change.

My solution:
Determine the average person's earnings over their lifetime.
Take the white collar criminal's stolen earnings and compare them to the this. If they exceed it, then they have effectively stolen the equivalent of a lifetime's work. Thus, they need to pay it back, with their own life.

So, if the average person working over their life earns ( I'm making this up, I don't know what it is) 2 million dollars and the Bernie Madoff wannabe embezzled more than that, then it's a death sentence.
