That's not old.

I turn 32 in a week. Now talk about old!

Re: Any old timers still around?

I time line it by telling people that JFK was alive when I was born, and that pretty much makes it ancient...

That's the thing that really blows my mind. I signed up when I was 14!

Re: Any old timers still around?

I was 26 going on 27 when I joined the board. I still had dial-up back then if I'm not mistaken.

I joined in 2000. I was definitely still on dial-up on my old school Macintosh.

I know. When I stop and think that babies that were born the month I graduated from high school are now approaching the legal drinking age I feel like drinking myself.
I know what that feeling is like ... as recently I've gone back to studying, and many of the other students just finished high school last year. One of the first persons that I met isn't 18 yet.

They made a mistake. They surely meant to give you the regular customer discount and just hit the wrong key.


I'm so old that I remember when the first pocket calculators were invented. And Quartz clocks. And my dad had the 3rd PC ever in Germany
And when Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins flew to the moon, we were allowed to stay up late and watch the first two hop around on TV.
Oh, and I heard the Beatles live on radio. And saw the Blues Brothers movie premiere and the very first airing of TOS.

^I guess I'm lucky - at age 30 I still get ID'd in pubs and told I don't look over 20. I just thank them for the compliment and show them my ID card...

I'm starting to get some silver ear hairs if that says anything.

Re: Any old timers still around?

You mean that similar to silverback gorillas, Trekkies get silver-eared with age?

Seems like it.

Although some of us started flinging our feces long ago.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Hi everybody. I used to post when it was PsiPhi.org. I haent seen any names that I remember yet. I remember that some of the writers like Christopher Bennett and Margaret Something used to post. Is it still run by David Henderson, or is this completely different now. By the way I really am pretty old.

The "regular customer discount"? I know of no such animal.

I think it's just whichever waitperson thinks I look old, they give me the discount if they feel like it.
