Personally, I find the most interesting and intriguing statistic is the fact that the two largest numbers are the 16-20's and us oldies but goldies (I'm 67. Yesterday. {sigh})

This backs up my opinion that Seniors and Teens have more in common than is commonly thought. For example, I get on very well with all of my grandchildren, but the teens (13 to 18) will ask me advice instead of asking parents. The 6 year old is another matter entirely; no one can possibly give her advice that she will listen to!

I built PC's for all 3 teens and this has succeeded admirably, to the point where the 18 year old is accepted at Birmingham Uni for Computer Networking and Security (CISCO) study.

Also, I have to support the view that we have memory malfunctions. I had forgotten that I had voted in the Poll. Whatever it was concerned with ...

Now if I could find my spectacles, I could find my other spectacles ...

Good observation Bertison, and many happy returns for yesterday.

From an earlier post of mine :

Quote:
The very reason I started the poll was because I suspected that the most active members here are older than I thought they may be (I'm 41 for the record). The poll was designed to test the myth that its the younger generation (lets say <25 for arguments sake) that grasp technology well (or better than the older generation). The poll has proved, with the current sampling, that the > 55's have as good, if not a better grasp, of Windows 7 and related technology. In my own personal experience here, I can confidently say that with only a few exceptions, its the > 55's that have taught me the most here.
