You're probably correct about that.

Also, when I got here it was a thriving forum already.

I promised myself that I would not interfere with that which was already working. I have some powerful weaknesses, see the second line of my signature.

I don't think you should start breaking the forum.

I do not think so either but it is my nature to try and improve things that are not broken. Often, this does more harm than good.

I think it applies to software or electronics.

Nope, cost me a good job when I was a bit older than you.

I think you're still a bit older than me.

What job?

My real age is difficult to determine because all records of my birth were destroyed in a fire. When this question was first asked I said 9 and they refused to believe me. Everyone seemed happier with someone much older and wiser. The older part I could deal with easily and said 94, the wiser, I am still working on... So, that was about 2 years ago so I will be 96 in June.

I believed that you were 9.

Your birth records were destroyed in a battle

And who were battling? 0 and 1? Pi and phi? Positive and negative?

First we need to know what battle it was.

I guess it's the Great Reptile Battle... Crawling reptiles and slithering reptiles fought each other to determine who deserve to rule the earth, then a Triceratops enters the contest...

We still have three-horned reptiles today, though.

Hopefully, none of the two legged variety.
