Happy New Year!

In an effort to revive my grey matter and hoping to somehow delay the signs of ageing (and the Alzheimers' disease who is definitely on the way!!!), I have recently joined your team!
I am amazed by the devotion all of you demonstrate! I posted my first 2 questions yesterday, and I already have some of you working on them!
I am 48, hold a polytechnic degree in Naval Engineering and work in IT for many years. Btw, I am Greek smile
Thanks for accepting me in your nice group! dizzy
Anna

Re: Happy New Year!

Welcome Anna. Definitely a good idea to keep your brain challenged. I have known people in their 90s to be more alert than people in their 20s because they stay interested.

Re: Happy New Year!

Hi anna_gg;

Yes, I already guessed your engineering background or something like it.  I will have to disagree with you having any sharpness problems.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

I have heard that life only gets interesting when you hit 95.
