I'm a woman who's certain about her age, and in another online area, my handle
is "OlderWoman." There are certain drawbacks to admitting age, especially in
working around younger programmers who have yet to understand that there are
benefits to doing a good job that have nothing whatsoever with dying your hair
crayon-red or wearing a lip-ring or listening to certain types of music. Most
however, don't care so long as I produce.
