41 or 10-1/4 I can never remember which! So I am both old and young!


Hey, a good friend of mine just retired when he hit 16-1/4.

Me? I'm older than dirt, but younger than dinosaur doo doo.

I certainly hope you mean your waist, tuuxxx.
A 32" turd must be very painful to lay around. Shocked

I turned 21 last month.

I began using Puppy when I was 16. Seems like eons ago.

Staggering... the average age of those old foggies who are responding is around 50! Less than 3% of Puppy users under 20 years old. It is an aging population, who will soon be reading the obituary pages instead of the Puppy Linux forum... No wonder so many of them want Puppy to come with a bit of Bling! No wonder there are so many arguments; it is perhaps the crisis effect of "very late" middle age on men (primarily). As Caneri's big brother, I speak with experience (not that we are actually related...) :-)

A week from 63 here Smile

Reason for such interest by us "old Fogies" is we have time to play and many of us have been playing for many years.. my first computer was an IBM 1130... all cards... printer 100 LPM.. that is lines per minute... 8 K of memory... well 8 thousand 16 bit words... 16 K in bytes.. for you young folks Smile. Payroll I wrote overlayed itself 8 times... operator never had a clue. For it's time probably more programs and languages written for the 1130 than any other computer. Most schools had them. Lots of sharing of ideas and knowledge.

Are pictures soon to follow from proud parents and grand parents? Smile))

Keep up the good work. Puppy is a fun project! Lots of folks are realizing Puppy is all they need on a computer. Let us keep making it easier and easier to use.

Thanks to Terryphi for the idea, and the 'buntu link.

Very interesting to see how theirs is shaping up like a Poisson distribution, peaking in the 20s. I wonder how closely the respondent profile reflects the user profile.

Great scope for speculation, mesniffs.

The earth has been around the sun 34 times with me on it, if thats relevant. I always thought the puppy posse were generally a little younger than the average people have posted here.....dont know why.

Im currently preparing a puppy laptop for a guy who is 92. The youngest user I know of is my friends little boy...aged 2, who is a gcompris testpilot, language is still a bit of a barrier, but he provides some great feedback into the development process via tantrums when it crashes.....hmmm Wink

My beergut is well earned and fully paid for, and my "laughter lines". I havnt had any more grey hairs since I stopped using Micro$oft. I can still party thats the important thing...I have a stinking hangover atm lol

I find its not how long I live, its how much that really matters. Wink
