    how old are most of the users on this forum?
    i personally think about 70% of the users are "experienced" (over 30 :) )coz u all know so much bout computers and anything related
    i hav only been using computers for about 5 ish years
    is anyone below the age of 16?

    In answer to the first question: 28. My first computer was an IBM PCjr.

    In answer to the 2nd question: 40 hours a week at work and on average an additional 30-40 hours a week at play. Most of the play is on the weekends, but I always manage to get in at least an hour or two a night.

    I work with computers during the day and I do a LOT of side work after work as well as play on my home PC (not so much more since my little girl was born). I would have to say I probably spend a good 80 hours a week on a computer.

    I was 56 in April and my first computer was an Apple IIe (circa 1984) - but got away from it for quite a while. I have been active again and learning (catching up) for the past three years.

    I spend somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 hours a day online "playing" - ntfs and sp mostly. I also spend an additional hour catching up on email and doing letters/research!
