I get the feeling suddenly, that most of the habitancy of Makezine and Instructables are comprised of school age individuals. I had not known that when I subscribed (although it doesn't change anything except maybe how I compose my comments from here on in).
I like to do this stuff, not just to help others along the path, but to keep my own brain working and exploring (yeah, even a senior citizen can have "innovative thoughts" and be a bit of a risk-taker (at times ;-) ). So, I am the newbie here (for now) and if any of my "English" sounds right out of the 50's, let me know, and I will translate *lol*
Thumbs up to all you explorers out there (get yourself a TSR spell checker, or program one, and help keep me young at heart and mind)

Two things to add: #1: Kiteman, I see you are a teacher and so you are exempt from most of my post...I have read your comments and suspected as much all along, #2: sorry this was off topic

We've actually got a large spectrum of ages. From seniors like you, down to 8 or 9 year olds, and everything in between.

Aye, I am starting to see that also as I have a get a little time here and there to browse around (technically I am not quite a "senior" yet, as I will only be 50 in Nov. but after my first impression of the youth here struck me, I thought that "50" might just be considered "senior" by many.

The body may not be as agile, but the mind is only getting stronger ;-)

Ah! Well, I can assure you that there are members who are both older and younger than you. Granted, the younger population is much more prominent...

Thanks, as I read around the different forums I am seeing what you mean. Something puzzles me though. I was able to post without "being subscribed" to any forums, and now that I have subscribed to a few, I am having difficulty understanding the purpose to that. It does not seem to change anything (maybe I should use another option besides View All when I enter ? :-) ).

Yeah..being a member of a group really doesn't do anything except allow you to add instructables to that group. Any topics posted in a group are also displayed on the main forum.

As for being off topic, you should read some of the other threads around here...

I understand better now, thanks. I am kind of accustomed to forums (mostly in the CARE2 environment) that indiscriminately delete posts that are off topic.

>>>> you should read some of the other threads around here... >>>> All in good time :-) I just finished putting together a computer armoire / workstation and have to move my whole system over the weekend. Was my 20th year gift from my workplace...it came in 2 flat boxes. I like constructing things, but some of those furniture "kits" should come with the person that wrote the instructions; so THEY can put it together (and maybe then write better instructions ?)

I wasn't looking forward to going back to school because, well... monies. My wallet has been crying since August 21st. :P But now that I'm there I'm fine. I just need to get more motivated. I have too many things outside of school distracting me from it!

I wonder if the barbie will get you extra credit? And what's so special about the 21st?

I doubt she would get me extra credit. I have a feeling at least 2 of my teachers (being women, and very prissy women at that) would be absolutely mortified, and one of my male teachers would probably declare me mentally unstable. Only my A & P teacher would find it amusing, I think. He seems to have a very odd sense of humor. :P And the 21 is when I went back to college and starting buying books/software... $500 worth this semester. :(

I have never "left" school (well, formal school, yes, but the world is my classroom, and I am always on the look out to "find out how that works ;-) ).

Really, I'm starting to look forward to that school... A school that doesn't cost tuition on top of the costs of the "world classroom" :p

Believe me, it "can" be more costly, especially if one forgets to research, research, research to make sure one does not re-invent the mistakes already made by others ;-) I have been in "this" school for about 32 years, and it allows no "do-overs" nor makeup tests, most times.

We start back Monday, the kids come back Wednesday. Slight problem - I don't have my timetable yet, and don't know what I'm actually teaching next week, nor which students I am actually teaching. Good job I can BS on the fly...

Actually, this summer was not that bad, not best, but not bad. At least I managed to make several homemade firearms , detonated my first ANNM (The explosion was massive) , blew up more stuff , visited the American Museum of Natural History , went to the beach once , learned a little bit of martial arts , learned how to open locks , and I think thats quite it.
