I was just reading PerfectStranger's first post and found it very interesting. Unless it has been done before, I thought it might be interesting to know who are the older members who read and contribute to gz.

PerfectStranger said he is in his 70's. Let's hear from you, Seniors, and you may like to tell us some of your early-geek experiences as PS did.

If we're measuring in wisdom years, probably true.

Well I'm younger than 70, so I guess it's not me :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Morgana42: I'm 71Smile


Cheers Morgana42.

Someone set this as The Answer but that may not be correct - PerfectStranger Bob said he is "... in his 70's..." so he may be older than Patricia. Also the thread has not been running for long so there may be other older answerers - let's see what pans out.

Mauricio - there's gz badges for all sorts of stuff - why not badges for members in their, say, 60's, 70's, 80's etc? Maybe make it you have to be a subscriber - to get your sales up hehe.

BTW, I'm 61.
