Yes,it great to find not everyone here is a "Johny-Come-Lately"! :-)

Some people start programming young these days!  I'm coaching an 11 year 
old in Java, he has his own Linux box.  He got into Java by himself when 
he was 10, despite neither of his parents being in IT. His mother is a 
friend of my wife's, and he suddenly phoned up in February asking if I 
could help him.  I have introduced him to PostgreSQL & SQL, and later I 
think I will also get him into C and other languages.  I was 18 before I 
had a chance to write programs - I think he will better than I ever was, 
before he is 18!
