Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

See now, this is what I call a proper fanatic. They don't make them like that nowadays (he's probably 50, in mind if not in body).


41, actually. Born in 1968. Saw our 7-11 go from Pinball machines to Asteroids. Was around when the Atari 2600VCS was a 6-switch unit. Saw every advance of home gaming technology from the 2600 to the Jaguar. The Zenith Odyssey. The Vectrex. From the Nintendo Entertainment System (otherwise known as the NES) to the Nintendo Wii. From the Sega Master System to the Sega Dreamcast. From the Sony Playstation to the Playstation 3. Xbox to Xbox 360.

Saw every advance of computing technology from the Apple II, Atari 8-bit, Atari ST, Commodore VIC-20, Commodore 64, Commodore 128, Amiga 500/1000/1200/2000/3000/4000, and IBM PC Jr. to the latest Wintel PC's made today and fastest Apple PC's made today (or is that redundant, as they're 100% identical?).

On and on I could go... and would, but I gotta take a nap before going to church tonight... us old timers have more to worry about than just livin' in the 70's, 80's, 90's, and the 2000's, ye young whipper-snapper!
