Why the heck are the 30s lumped in with those 40s dinosaurs? The OP must be young. I remember when anything over 30 was 'old.'

And Dave: There is also a threshold where when somebody mentions something that is x years in the future and you wonder "will I still be here?"

There is a positive spin on this. From time to time I now think, "I'll probably be dead by then. Not my problem!"

Sometimes, that's a good thing.

I remember being about 6 years old, and thinking "1970 is coming! A whole new decade!"

I also remember wondering where I would be when the year 2000 came along. "Wow!" I knew I would be 36, and tried to imagine who I would be.

I remember doing that. But I never thought I would live this long! Honestly, when I was very young, I figured the US and the Soviets would launch and end it all first. It was all too real back then.

ha! I kinda do this too. It hurts my retirement funding. It's just hard for me to imagine me living to 65, so why waste all that money by saving it lol

I never thought there be anything after 2000. I did know I will be 38 in 2000, but I never realized I will get older after that, somehow 2K was putting a limit to my imagination.

As a kid, I, too, calculated the age I'd be on New Year's Eve 2000. I clearly remember thinking, Too bad I'll be too old (36) to really enjoy or appreciate the significance of seeing a new millennium .

Hey kids the older you get the older old gets. To me, 80 is looking old now. This has been going on since I turned 30, back when I thought 40 was old.

LOVE the range of age on here. Most forums lack the "more mature" members because many aren't particularly computer literate I guess but geeks, regardless of age, LOVE technology. :-)

Some of us were computer "literate" back when early versions of DOS (or earlier languages) were used as operating systems.

OK, I'm older than dirt, but I'm proud of the fact that I could spend over $5k to buy a PC, a color monitor, and a printer, and I was stupid enough to do it. My first real PC was and IBM PS2 and it was horrendously expensive, but learning to program gave me an easy path out of that paper mill, and it was well worth it.

Want to go out on your own? If you are married, I hope you have a spouse that is confident in your abilities and is willing to spend some time growing your new business. If not, you are toast, and/or your relationship is.

What's funny is that Franklin was 12 when he wrote this and had a net worth of 260,000 pounds.
