    Actually, what I should have said is "Of course not! Who has time to code in VB6 when I'm busy shaking my cane yelling 'gitoffamahlawncrazykids!'"

    Oh I have one of those too.... Winchester Model 12 from 1924. I'm also looking to pick up a Mosin Nagant rifle sometime in the near future. My eldest daughter is rapidly approaching that dating age... I plan to be ready...

    I'm in that age range, though I'd rather not thing of it as grandad age. I'm about to go on a 1000 mile bike ride, so I'm not ready for a rocker, just yet.

    Also I don't write either VB or VB.NET. Nor am I a grandfather (That I know of).

    Great. Now I feel out of place

    At 63 I am confident I can do 1000 miles. (Provided it is all downhill.)
