It's not really ageism, just how I feel *my self* about going back to 
school. I'm not done learning though, it's just that I can give my self 
the luxury of learning whatever I want, just what I want at the pace 
that I want. And since I happen to like computers that's mostly what I 
concentrate about. Right now I'm hooked on Python, but also messing 
about with PHP and Javascript. Tried some Java but didn't like it... 
Threw out Windows a couple of years ago and have spent quite some time 
learning the ins and outs of Linux.

So even if I probably will never go back to school I'm looking forward 
to many many years learning new and exciting things :)

(Sorry for the way OT post. I just couldn't stop my own ramble ;)
