Oh, you're not the only one! I wonder acutely at times. Alas, while Mark did
a masterful job of deducing the relationships among our ages, it's the only
clue we've got -- until Mark reveals his own age, Guido and I are as baffled as
everyone else. I suspect Fredrik Lundh also knows Mark's age, but you've seen
how hard it is to get a straight answer from a bot.

Stuff and nonsense. I know for a fact that Guido recently had his first child.
Given the notorious and shameful lack of self-restraint among the Dutch, *I*
figure that proves he was about 13 years old approximately 10 months ago.
Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised a bit if his son became older than him as early
as next year.
