58, but I still feel and act like 26...

Based on the age of all you fossils Very Happy , maybe we should add a line to all puppy's description:

The distribution that keeps you young! Proven by the age of it's users!

I am too old and too lazy for my own good.
Sitting in front of the computer for almost the whole day
will make my life some 40% shorter the researchers say.

So being past 65 years old I most likely will not last much longer
than 70 years old or so ? Haha everybody will get happy
when I stop spamming the forum with my naive comments. Smile

@tallboy: Good one and a great idea! I love it!! Very Happy

@nooby: I highly doubt the "40%" theory and I'll tell you why: Look at Stephen Hawking. The computer and his brillant mind with the ability to think/reason have helped to keep him alive as the oldest surving person with Lou Gerhig's Disease for starters. Plus, if it also wasn't for the computer having kept my mind active and giving me a reason to continue I, too, would've thrown in the towel long ago as well.

Hmm... a very long story which I probably shouldn't have brought up on open forum as "who cares". LOL! But I immediately thought of it serving a point to prove that I seriously doubt a computer shortening one's lifespan. Wink

Cheers everyone!

I'm now 38, and time is flying by too quickly nowadays.
Honestly, what has happened in my life for the last decade is mostly a blur. Emotionally, I still feel like I'm 25.

Very Happy Hello,
Tman, we all feel 25 emotionally, lol..
Perhaps you would feel better about to realize some of us would kill to be 38 again...

Guys, I really think this thread proves that Puppy isnt delegated to the "college kids with taped glasses" but that it indeed includes a broad group of people.. I do believe that the TRS-80 / CPM / 6502 generation and before find Linux easier to grasp... than the Windoze generation.... we are just used to having to do a little more than "click"..

I cant say Puppy has kept me from "throwing in the towel", but it has kept an old hobby alive.. I can still make a "Computer Graduate" say "Wow, how did you do that" and that is worth it.. Plus I believe that Puppy, and studying how it operates, teaches you more about how your Computer works, than any MS certification....

Its like it gives you Commodore access to a Windoze PC... Wink Wink

Hi, puppyluvr.

Nah, I disagree. There's a typo there. Laughing The sentence should read:

>Its like it gives you AtariXE access to a Windoze PC...

Also, truth be said, who really wants access to a Windoze PC... Twisted Evil

BFN. Very Happy
