  1. And why am I here? Well, I thought I knew everything until I came here. I've been working with computers since 1952 and I've seen the gamut of computer history development from the historic (analog) Differential Analyzer (at MIT developed in the '30s) up to the magnificent and amazing desktop PC of today,

    At 91 years I've seen it all and I am humbled. Tmradius

    Programming up until lI retired in '83 which was about the time that the PC really invaded the marketplace. Last job was a Rockwell Space Program where I worked on the Shuttle. Here I also programmed using SAS (a software to solve statistical problems. After retiring I also 'job shopped' doing statistical programming. I wish I were 50 years younger. This is such an exciting technological era......

    Welcome, good to have you on board. You are definately well above the median age here. I am too and I'm just 28.
    How true it is on the more you learn about a field the more you realize what you don't know.

    Yes, SNGX1275 I agree. And with tongue in cheek, I say why study? The more you study the more you know, the more you know, the more you forget, the more you forget, the less you know, the less you know, the more stupid you are. So why study?
