But seriously, look at the oldtimers (above 50) they have seen it all and are still "young enough" to take in new stuff. Sometimes I wish I was a little older and had lived in an IT intensive environment all of my life. The "young punks" today get W7 and soon W8 served on a silver plate with none or little experience of the shitloads of W98 and WXP BSOD's we elders went through.
We aren't that Young! - I grew up with Win 98 and Win ME and Win XP

I tried to change mine, but it wouldn't let me. I feel younger today.

You guys....LOL. You want to know old? I was already into my IT career about 15 years when Windows 1.0 came out. I installed that version on a state-of-the-art Compaq PC with a 20Mb hard drive and thought I'd never fill that much disk space.

My first job as a programmer was using RPG on an IBM 360 Model 20. Everything was on punched card back then. Even the compiler. The input, calcs and output sections were placed into three different places in the compiler deck. The compiler deck itself took up an entire 30" card drawer. We were limited to 16Kb of memory. About a year after I started, the company added Disk Drives that were nearly the size of a washing machine and more memory. We had a whopping 24Kb of memory and thought we were in heaven.

I can just hear the young guys now--What's a compiler? What's RPG? Cards?

As long as when you look at the grass you see the green side, you're OK.

I hope you mean water from the tap. The other form of watering kills grass.

Which age category do you fall in? [2]

Is this a sign that HDD prices are about to fall?
I've noticed on Newegg that they've increased the limits on the amount of drives that you can buy. I've seen 3, 5, 10, 20 and 100 drive limits, today. Even the 20 packs are back. If they have so many drives in stock, then why are prices still so high? Price gouging, perhaps? Something...
