No - I hestitate to contradict you, but this mention of actual ages arose 
because Gene assumed that he was talking to someone who was not his age.  He 
said in fact that he was 3 times my age.  So his assumption is that everyone 
else is young - not that everyone else is his age!!  You are almost exactly 
on the age he clearly wants the rest of us to be. ;-)  (One third of 74 is 
just under 25.)

You have knowledge, we have experience.  The one complements the other nicely.  
Please don't let's turn this into an ageist war. :-)

Incidently, my local LUG currently has a membership ranging in age from 14 to 
76.  (So far as we know.  There may, of course, be the odd closet 9 year old 
or 85 year old. ;-)  )  Why do groups of people need to be all the same age 
for people to "belong"??
