Hmmm.... wouldn't that be an awful lot of us?

I learned C on an I16 arch (and remember Borland's small, medium, large and huge models, the near/far keywords, and all that fun), and I'm only 35, so not a greybeard just yet.

As a greybeard of 34, I first met C on a BBC B with a ROM chip that gave us a sort of halfhearted C (this was probably in 1988, or something, so pre-standardization in any case). 'short' was 8 bit, 'int' 16, 'long' 32. Borland's Turbo C gave me so much more memory that it felt like being let out of jail (until I used it all up, that is).
