    I hear a lot of old people refer to themselves as young. The young people refer to them as old. But half a century old is not too old.
    Do not read this sentence.
    You read that last one, didn't you?
    Darn. You now read the previous two.

    It's not too old but it certainly isn't young. It is old enough to know youth is wasted on the young

    I can remember being only 53... (Just)
    That was a generation ago, but I'm sure my memory was better then... (I think)

    I was a stalwart VB6 proponent. The above is completely true. Once I took the time to see that .NET wasn't bad, but simply opened up a whole new set of tools, my productivity went up considerably.
