The latest picture of me - taken about this time last summer while I was in Afghanistan. In this particular picture, you see me pausing for a photo op during a mortar shoot. I have a 60mm HE (high explosive) round in my hand. Behind me is the 120mm pit, and we were preparing for a "coordinated shoot" with our mortars and the Afghan's D30 artillery.

This last weekend I finally got out of the Army National Guard - after 7 years of service.

I'm smiling in that photo so maybe that accounts for the nice look.

It's actually a crop of a picture of me and a friend who moved to Oregon and came back to visit after a year.

@ephemera: You look younger than I'd have guessed. (Carpetsmoker does too, actually.)

I figure everyone looks younger than I imagine. It's called old age.

I'll always accept the help of a good Zinfandel!

Scottro and I are within a couple years of each other in age, and you are right: neither of us is as old as we like to claim. Still, most computer fora, including this one, are populated by people in their 20s (give or take, granting many exceptions) who are students or early in their careers. That does lead to a difference in perspective.

Good for him!

In some ways you have to compare age with where computers were at the time. When I started programming in 1975, we were still on punched cards and serial terminals were in their infancy -- only upper division EECS majors got to use them (I was neither). Going back much farther does not really add to one's knowledge of computer history and how things developed. Compare that with the young'uns who know only GUIs and the OSS/Windows "struggle."

I know this is OT...

This pic is a few years old...taken with a now 9 year old Sony Mavica...a new digital camera is on my shopping list (I don't even have a floppy drive anymore and the batteries barely work). Imagine me now with shoulder-length hair and a short beard (no moustache). And, yes, that is a SpongeBob Squarepants shirt.
