I'm 24 now. I mastered PDP-11 assembly at age 7. By age 11 wrote my own OS for
a Soviet PDP-11 clone. But then I'm Soviet, so that should explain it. We
Soviets are obviously superior. :-)))))))))))))

My girlfriend is 18, but she is very mature for her age. And I have absolutely
no fear about letting her around my classic computers since she has the highest
respect for my work. We are both pagans and these computers support our pagan
work. For her to screw up the computers would be equivalent to betraying her
Goddess Herself. I will teach her how to use my operating system (a classic
version of VAX UNIX, other people in my group run other classics OSes too),
she'll have a terminal on her desk in our command room just like I do, and the
policy of no pee seas with Weendoze being allowed in the house will be entirely
reasonable and acceptable to her because it's the enemy's operating system.

Other people on this list keep whining about their wives conflicting with their
classic computing, but I will have a female partner using these great systems
together with me in our pagan work, which has brought us together in the first
