( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
THat said, I'm glad to see a fair number of grey bearded monks here (and even more glad that my wife is an avid reader of cadfael novels, hence she likes my grey beard ;--)

Maybe the reason there aren't as many of us greybeards is that many of us passed through high school and college without ever having the chance to take a programming course.

At my location (University of Missouri) there are a number of old farts like me who are largely self-taught, and an even larger number of younger programmers and sysadmins who grew up dreaming in (insert language of choice here).

They do keep us on our toes, though. I have learned a lot from working with some of the recent graduates.

Yes, and I also like the Cadfael mysteries, as does my wife. The first series of PBS Mystery! videos was pretty good, but the later series have been a little disappointing.
