    Man, at 24 I feel like and old fart!!
    Well, at least I'm not quite as haggardly as you 29-30 year olds!! Hee, hee...

    Man, I remember when we kept games on cassette tapes and it took over an hour to boot up!!! If you wanted to play a game
    (text only, like a choose your own adveture), put the tape in and wait another hour!!

    I will say this, I am impressed with the maturity of this generation of teens! To see a 13-15 year old carrying on an intelligent, fairly mature conversation with adults is kinda weird!

    Can anyone tell me the difference between each of these?

    1) Geek
    2) Nerd
    3) Dweeb

    I think that a nerd is someone who's life centre's around computers, while a geek is someone who's life centre's around computers through choice. And a dweeb is a kind of additive high sweet?

    I don't consider myself a geek, nerd, or whatever other names are being used nowadays. I'm a computer (mainly Internet) enthusiast by choice, and no, I'm not some little teenage computer nerd with glasses who sits alone at school. I'm a pretty regular guy.

    I'm 21, and i feel too old when i compare myself to these youngsters...
    I remember the tape games era, because since my family didn't have the money to buy a true computer, i had a tape one in 1991... an Amstrad CPC464 of 1984.
    But i really enjoyed making beautiful "Now loading..." pages, all coded in Basic and ASM pixel by pixel, coz there were no image files on this machine.

    Now when i see these young people taking over the whole dictionnary of common nouns just to have a domain name, and knowing how to code CGI, ASP, PHP and stuff as if they had a server at home, well, i feel old.

    But on the other hand, web-geeks don't know much about computer languages outside the web-related languages, which are all pretty simple...

    I was a bit off-topic on this one... you know, nostalgy.

    Okay Kids - Step Aside - Grandad's just come in!

    Wow! You guys sure know how to make a guy feel young.

    I am slightly older than most of you but really look up to you guys since I am so new to this world of Web Page Building etc.

    I endorse the belief that you should not be judged by your age but by your ability. After all, Age (like Weight) is just a number!

    On the serious side though for a second - never loose touch with modern technology - otherwise you will also find yourself in a position where your children start teaching you a thing or two. (I'm a bachelor so at least I don't have kids).

    Anyway guys - I don't care how old you are - if you can guide me in the right direction I will respect and look up to you!

    BTW - I started in computers when Bill Gates still had hair (lots of it, that is).

    Oh yes, my age - 41 years young.

    When I grow up I wanna be a cowboy....

    Dunno, if i've replied to this yet. I'm 20. Only just 20 mind.

    I've got a working NES at home, I used to love the Mario games, I think it was the 2nd where you'd pick up the vegetables and throw them. Princess Toadstool was so the best character!

    I still love playing on my Mega Drive (Genesis in the US) and think i've got a SNES somewhere. Remember Secret of Mana on SNES and Shining Force 1 & 2 on Genesis / MD? Wow!

    Ugh, I hated the 2nd Mario Game. It was the only one not worth playing really...every other game (Mario 1, Mario 3, Super Mario, Mario 64, Dr. Mario, Mario Golf, Super Smash Brothers and Mario Tennis) was great, but that one annoyed the **** outta me!

    Mario Golf is easily one of the best...I can't get over what a great game it is.
