Also, the people active in the Lounge are probably not representative for typical players of any of IVs games. We're an awkward bunch. :P

Might it be even so that at the time of taking the poll you fell out of the range of the agegroups? :P (* doesn't remember when Jelco's birthday is :roll: *)

If you'd actually care to read the poll in question (it's linked from the Overview) you get your answers - one of them is: one cannot fall 'out of the range' of the age groups, because a) the groups cover all possible ages and b) that's some poor English. :P

Age- wise I should be in the 15-20 area, but there were a few years when I was presented 2 cakes (at different parties, one family, one friends). So I will have to say 20-25

crikey - they got to be 25 years old! have you ever tried loading Elite from one of those big floppy disks? (they were floppy then lol :) )

surely mobile phones are more powerful than beebs nowadays (though not so programable i guess...)
