The reason one gets "old" is due to "time compression": when you don't learn anything new, one day is just like the rest.

I once said to myself I was too old to learn that (something); then looking back, after x years, it now seems is ridiculous.

I've stopped thinking about where a path might lead and if I have enough "time". It only got more interesting. It's the new domains you have to learn along the way.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
