    Welcome to TechSpot! We enjoy seeing younger members join the forum. Except for captaincranky (juskidn, :p), we all know there is only one thing gives him enjoyment. With my memory getting worse and my stubborn ways never changing, the others can use your help keeping me in check. lol

    My right knee after too many sports and not enough parts is old enough to collect social security; not the rest of me, mind you, just my right knee. But like misor I am old enough for a number of you to be your father. Or a really cool uncle... :cool:

    Hi misor. OK. Now I'm curious.... "Old enough to be father to most" but your profile says you're 23?? :confused: :eek:

    How does that work? <G> ;)

    I'm so old I used a slide rule in school. I still have one too, but I can't remember how to use it. You know you are old when you remember the invention and progress of the calculator

    Well I guess I'm the oldest up to now, 82; body falling apart but young and stupid in the head and heart. Love my computer; never thought I would master it but I'm doing pretty well, considering I remember having to go to a garage (as we called it in those days) to have an accumulator charged up to take home and play the radio, I also used to tinker with a Crystal set. Google it you don't know what it is.
