    I'm 30 3 times in a row. My first penabled slab of silicone was a lenovo ThinkPad 1 Android tab (what a headache!)

    My old man used to collect the comics when he was a kid, so naturally I grew up reading them.

    It also used to be printed in the newspapers here sometimes, and then let us not forget the '96 film with Billy Zane and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

    So I really had no choice, I was born a fan. ;)

    Ha, well of course... Age is measured in imperial and metric, no? :p

    I'm 29 for 11 years straight!

    My first pen enabled thingie was a Fujitsu Siemens Loox 600 PDA, which was then replaced by a 720, which in its turn was replaced by a HTC Flyer (with N-trig) and that one has now been replaced by my Asus. I always take care of my devices...

    I guess maybe I'm not all that much of a young'n after all. So far the average age is about ~39.

    print,(21*3.+30*9.+40*4.+50*5.+60*2.+70*1.)/24.

    And I didn't think anything could make me feel like a kid again. Thanks Ron! (Yes, I know he's not really 90:()

    34. First TPC was a Toshiba R15 ... I guess it would've been about 2004-5? Tried it out on a lark when I was wandering in a Best Buy and ended up getting sucked into drawing on it for like an hour while people kept stopping behind me to watch (for some reason it already had a copy of Sketchbook Pro on it? Or maybe a stripped down demo version). I worried the sales associates might get annoyed but they seemed happy to have something different happen (I'm sure they were seeing dollar signs above my head too).

    I picked up my first Wacom tablet around 1999 because painting with a mouse (well, and playing Quake 3) was causing injury to the nerves in my hand. It was a 12x12" Art Z II with a serial port connection, which I used until about 2004.

    44 as of two months ago.

    I finally stopped being mistaken for a university student when the grey hair started to creep in. It's kind of nice to be taken seriously as though I were a for real adult for the first time in my life. There are bonuses to being in your 40's. -One of which is. . , I don't sweat the small stuff anymore. Still spry enough to do fun things, BUT have been through enough crap to know there's always light at the end of the tunnel and that, Lil' Orphan Annie song about "Tomorrow" is high wisdom.

    My first computer was a TRS-80 Color Computer with a generous 4K RAM. You could touch the screen, (a crappy garage sale color TV), and it actually responded! -With weird interference and an altered pitch in the ever-present electric whine of the CRT.

    I love Flat Screen Technology. Seriously. Thank-you, Science. CRT's were the tool of the devil. Them and car alarms.

    I was doing "pixel art" before it was a "thing".
