Must be. Personally, I first came across it in a book by that quintessential English author Mark Twain :roll:

Well, I guess the conclusion may be, that you retire from phpBB Group no later than at the end of the month before the month you hit the 99 years of age.

I suppose we have to congrat him for starting this forum/web2.0 project at the very respectable age of 92. I know very few people in their 90s that are able to code in PHP.

The only person I knew well that was over 90 was my grandma, and she hardly distinguished a computer from a TV... :)

That's nothing at all. My grandmother actually used e-mail quite a lot (like, two mails a year), and she was more than 90.
I am sure she knew PHP in and out.
I may not speak perfectly English, but don't bother. It's not my mother tongue :)

Okay, how about over 60?

I do know one individual over the age of 60 who is a programming genius (much more than I am), he started out in pre-dos systems, and has progressed and learned nearly every common programming language, though his primary language is ASP and Java.
