Nope, I miss quite a few in fact.  Old? I might be looking at 77 yo in a 
couple months, and a few things don't work anymore because I'm too sweet 
(type 2 diabetic), but I can occasionally claim to be a JOAT in a serious 
tone of voice.  Hell Dotan, I even know how vacuum tubes work, including 
some of the exotic ones, like klystrons.  I had to wait till they had 
invented transistors before I could use my first one, 10 years after I had 
decided I wanted to be an electronics whiz in about '39 cuz my uncle kept 
himself in beer money fixing radios.

ROTFLMAO!  And right you are.  It took me several decades (and 3 women I'll 
explain someday) to reach that conclusion.

Cheers, gene
