Here, only kbdfr is older than me.

On GH, every time I am about to think that I am oldest, terrapin will pop up and edge me out by a few months.

You know you're old when somebody says, "Oh, Windows 95! My dad says he used that when he was a kid. It's ancient!"

When my dad was a kid, computers were just being invented to break Nazi code.

Ditto here. Enigma was broken right around the time my dad showed up, to keenly watch documentaries all about it, decades ever later. Me and my brothers were the ones to teach him Windows 95.

Something I routinely get from folk in the community when I meet them in real life is: “you’re younger than I thought!” I could take that as a compliment, but I prefer to take it to mean that I write like a rancorous auld fart!

I've always been a rancorous old fart, even when I was (technically) young. Parents were born during WW2, gf's dad actually grew up then and was an evacuee. And then a nuclear physicist, which was a new and exciting thing back then rather than today's "that's something we can buy from China because we have no idea how to do it."

Sounds like making keyboards.
