Bugs & Viruses 1983. The year of the IBM PC XT, the Apple Lisa, Pioneer 10 leaving the solar system, and Hooters opening up shop in Florida. It's also the birthyear of a 25 year old BSD bug, squashed only a few days ago.

Older than me too. This shows that Open Source only helps in solving the problems, not in detecting them.
Most people hate others' code, myself included. Hell, I even hate my own code when I haven't looked at it for a while.
