age of Python programmers

when I first saw the title, I thought it was along the same theme as the 
"age of dinosaurs" or some such thing.  but my answer is just 48, two 
years, more languages and I care to think about including mess of 
assembly languages, tpl (a weird form of ratfor), and pl/1 subset g.

Python made it possible for me to write code again.  After 18 years of 
programming, RSI went critical and I stopped programming pretty much for 
about 10 years.  Python syntax is simple enough that I can, with proper 
variable naming patterns, write code.  The 5000+ lines of code and 
comment in the camram project are proof of that.

I do wish there was better handicap accessibility for programming as 
there are a bunch of us damaged programmers about to undertake a rather 
significant project, namely making speech recognition work on Linux. 
The details a boring if you're not interested so I will spare you but 
this project is essential for those of us wishing for a choice in our 
development environments.


Speech recognition in use.  It makes mistakes, I correct most
