Started when I was 19. I'm 66 now and still enjoying writing code.

I do every day. Mainframe Assembler (z/OS) and I still manage to continue to abuse emacs in the process.

Mainframe Assembler with a nice set of structured programming macros. Nirvana!


Submission + - Myanmar Under Massive DDoS Attack (

An anonymous reader writes: With national elections just a few days away, a giant 15 Gbps DDoS has completely cut Myanmar off from the Internet (since Monday morning). Last time this happened, the military government severed country-wide Internet connectivity in an effort to block news of the Saffron revolution from getting out. This times it is unclear if it is the government or outside groups trying to disrupt Burma Internet communication. Apparently the attack is so large, that upstream ISPs have chosen to just drop all traffic to Myanmar Internet addresses space.
