You do realize I'm one of the "squirts" you're referring to right?
 I started working with computers in more than just a 'hey, I need to
write this paper' sort of way around 1995. The *first* CPU I used was
a pentium (though this is not the oldest, as I developed a fondness
for antiques).

So you geezers can just put the token ring down, and step away from
the thin-net. Oh.. and get off my lawn! :-P
