I hadn't heard that one about the WBCCI being "full of old farts" as you indicated in your post. I'm sure you aren't generalizing about the whole of WBCCI based on a few encounters with "old farts" like myself in New England, right?

According to the definition below of "old fart", I should be insulted by your post but, because I call myself an "old fart" all the time, I'm not insulted (i.e., if used in the first person, the term "old fart" is full of pride).


old fart n. Tribal elder. A title self-assumed with remarkable frequency by (esp.) Usenetters who have been programming for more than about 25 years; often appears in signature blocks attached to Jargon File contributions of great archeological significance. This is a term of insult in the second or third person but one of pride in first person.

Ok, I admit the only thing I got wrong was Freddy the Freeloader. I thought it was Clem Cadidlehopper. I bet I spelled that wrong! I'm proud to be an old fart. Like BALRGN said, your only as old as you feel.
