Duncan we did this back in '01 or '02 and someone out there still has the spreadsheet. Back then I was the youngest regular contributor to the list with Joel Metz a close second. If I remember correctly the average age was 52. I think it would be really interesting to compare the surveys since the list has grown so much since then. Oh and I'm still most of your kids age at 36. best, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Vancouver, B.C.
