 asked where I was from and then asked my age

Wow, pretty bold for a first conversation.  I'd bet everything that they are in their very early 20s.  Those are pretty much the only folks I know that think it is okay to ask those sort of questions right off the bat on the internet.

The 20's also seem to be the range which most often volunteer their age, and also seem to want to find others in the same age range. 

I figure if you develop a friendship with someone and enjoy talking with them, then age doesn't really matter. Over time there will be references that may give you hints of their general age.  I suppose if one is looking for an intimate relationship that would move to RL, more concern about age might be warranted ...

Yeah this is why I answered as vaguely truthful as I could. I didn't have the time to play with him like prey and was hoping my answers were not what he was looking for.

Even then, those of us that are a bit older, would still usually wait at least a bit before asking such questions.

And those of us that are a lot older just blurt out the number and have the 20 somethings say something like  "man that is so cool that you know how to use the computer!"

Twenty twenty twenty four hours to go
I wanna be sedated
Nothing to do, no where to go o,
I wanna be sedated

Just get me to the airport, put me on a plane
Hurry hurry hurry, before I go insane
I can't control my fingers, I can't control my brain
Oh no oh oh oh oh

Ba ba baba, baba ba baba, I wanna be sedated

This is what I first learned about computing on in 1976.

This is just the terminal, of course.  The CPU with its 8K of RAM was housed in what would today be a full tower case.

My first were standalone desktop HP units with pen plotter and cassette drive. My dad had me input programs at his office to teach me multiplication tables and play tic tac toe. I think they probably cost US$15k or so. I haven’t found pictures of those first units. This would have been maybe 75-76. 

P.S. For a gal, that’s a nice wang.

Or it might be the person was an unevolved relic from the old "A/S/L" days; either way the answer is pretty much "nunya".

I think this was the first computer I actually had my hands on (although only to play text games). The awesome Commodore 64.

It belonged to a friend; he didn't have the joysticks or that extra floppy drive, just the single-sided one on the top: 180K scintillating bytes of information. It's where I first saw the words, "It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue."

Aside from the HP I posted about (no screen), I got to use another (with screen and CPU) before 78, then nothing until Apple IIc in 82-84. Didn’t get my own until 84, C-64.

Ah yes, the good old chat rooms where they constantly asked that.  Some of them couldn't seem to actually maintain a conversation about anything else.

I used a Burroughs desk computer in 1972 -- the computer was built into the desk with a keyboard, paper feed, and the blinkenlights on top. I learned to program in assembly on it. I used some S100 bus CP/M machines and an Apple II in the late 1970s, then bought an IBM PC in 1981. I could build a really sweet computer now for what I paid for that thing.

Gosh, after all this computer talk, I feel positively young all of a sudden.  :P

 

Now to just convince the joints of that when I get out of bed each morning.

My problem wouldn´t really be them asking... but them asking even though it´s both in my Flickr and SL profile... READ people READ!!!!!! I just HATE repeating what´s in there... ffsit took ages to fill it out and keep it up to date... but them effers just don´t care... so if I´m not REALLY bored (and not ticked off because of it yet)  I´ll answer, though at times that´s the point where I start to play them starting with "hm now... well... what do my profiles say how old I am and where I´m from...roughly...hm?^^"

If they ***** at me I´ll start to claw them slightly asking why it would be my fault if they don´t read the given info to avoid this along with the hint that I don´t like messages like that :P

Consider it pay back for all the random wang pics I have received over the years.

 

[eta]
Actually I have never been sent one of those pics in real life and maybe just 2 or 3 in SL.

It’s never too late! Oddly, gay men on dating sites probably get more of those than women.

which is even more questionable...I mean... most male creatures  have one their own so ...they know what they look like xD And they´ve eventually seen others so they know about the variety... Just imagine there´d be such a fuss about ...dunno ... Fingertips.... xD Just another part of the body
