My mother actually predated me by getting online with an IBM laptop around 1993. :~)

Isn't it a bummer when parents do that :-))

I was using an Apple II at work in 1982.

Well well, happy birthday to me :-)) 18 years of hard slog, and a few up's and downs along the way. Forgetting the downs, the highlights are

Visit to the Seti Lab in 2011
Meeting Eric & Angela in USA
Meeting Ulibelle & Julie in England
Meeting Matt Lebofsky in London
Other assorted Setizens in other places
1 Billion+ credit for Boinc
1 million+ credit for Seti Beta
Donated funding & hardware

Not so active these days as I was, but I and my alter-ego plough on. Hopefully I will get a 20th Seti Anni tee shirt to go with my 15th one.

Happy birthday also to all those that have an 18th Anni this year, I'm sure we all agree it has been worth it, we could very well have found something, that was the gamble we took. All speed to Phase 2 and Nebula.

You are making Proof out of Logic, by just being dubious! {Bluestar to me)
