According to my Perl script, today I am 15,000 days old. And I don't think I look a minute over 10,000!!!

Good grief! I'd better get on the stick, I'm only averaging 0.615!

(I knew we'd find a good use for WolframAlpha!)

30000/(15000 + 38xx) =

Oh. Well, what's in a reciprocal?

On the other hand, that means I'm at 1.6... just try and catch up sonny-boy!



P.S. And just goes to show.... smart tools + dumb operator =

This seems like someplace where being younger is an advantage. And Bear still beat me by quite a bit!

=14501 / (10220 + X)
=1.4

Jeanne, you are reinforcing the belief that girls don't disclose their birthday.
... Just kidding

PS : but still anybody can find value of X by simple maths.

I gave the year. I'm 28 years old. It's the age girls don't like to disclose.

Not to the day - the 1.4 includes rounding. Which is what I'm concerned about - id theft is made easier if you know someone's actual birthdate.

Good point. I added some rounding errors myself.

Oh, that means your "actual" birthday was available between the time of post and the edit.
I missed that time frame

No, that's not ID theft: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Identity_theft

Thanks, that's a big issue, I never though t of such things, like publicaly disclosing you birth date, addres can leads you to the Id theft.
And one can have a good software project idea like verifying the documents just to avoid id theft, isn't it ?

It was only a minute or two. I realized the concern right when I pressed send.
