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

Thanks for accepting me in your nice group!

Hi anna_gg,

Nice introduction!

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.

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.

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