20, England. Big fan of the first two MOO games, and upset with how the 3rd one turned out. I'm just lurking around here really. I can program in python and c++ and just want maybe a little bit of experience. So if there are any jobs that people can't be bothered doing, just ask :)

I'm not sure where I was supposed to be insulting. I was asking a simple question. Forgive me if I have trouble believing that you're sixty-one years old and a fan of computer games.

And I have trouble beleiving that you have the maturity necessary to be a forum moderator.

If you had asked the question and the applied a :wink: There would have been no problem. But as it is it's an insult!

There were other posts of Thumper's about stuff he was working on circa 1980, so I took from that that he's at least mid-to-late forties. I was a bit surprised to see 61, too... 8)

Believe it or not, I did not mean to offend you. I really believed you had made a typo or a joke about your age. If you feel offended by that, then I apologize.
