Before this month ends, here's an interesting fact about October 2010:

Good on you :)

Another thing this does is just prove that older (read wiser ;)) people know a thing or two about computers, as opposed to the view taken by most people around my age :)

Thanks for the good wishes Scott,
Remember, I wasn't always "old" and I'm still as curious as I was when computers where first invented.  ;D

Good lesson for people, too. ;D
