38

Quite a lot of people posting seem to be around 60 (give or take a few years) and then some in their end 30ies. Not many below 35 and a few in between.
Thanks Mark, I've been wondering about Seti demographics for quite a while :)

I am 75 and have been called "nonnetto" (silly old man in Italian) by a fellow cruncher. But I am running 6 BOINC projects on a Linux box, plus Solaris Express as a guest OS via VirtualBox.

You're as old as (the woman) you feel.

(Before I'm accused of sexism, let me say that the gender in the preceding sentence is interchangeable.)

That would make me five years younger than I am, which is 47 years.

I quit counting at 21! Though I did have to admit to 22 once back in the 60s. (Found a state with a 22 year old drinking age!) Of course I quit counting 40 years ago.

For those of us over 60, if you really want to feel old, stop and think that we were born in the first half of the last century!

Message 1058479 - Posted: 21 Dec 2010, 15:47:53 UTC - in response to Message 1058434.

...As there is no real registration required...

But some of us mention the age in the profile (along with gender:-)

I'm 55, but I think I've never really grown up.

Gruß,

What sometimes makes me feel really old is realising that I went to the Festival of Britain in 1951 in what was then, the Battersea Pleasure Gardens, now known as the South Bank site. I saw the Dome of Discovery, the Skylon etc.

Then I watched the funeral of King George VI on a 9" black & white telly in 1952, then the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, probably on the same set. In those days most of the world, particularly Africa was coloured pink n the map.

Don't tell me about feeling ancient!
