I'm going on 71 with 50 years (started 1968 computer operations IBM mainframes).
I've spent the past 25 years freelancing as an IT consultant and the past 10 years working remotely.
I really enjoy working with the technology, both hardware and software.
I've gained experience with IBM mainframes and DEC computers and gradually moved to Unix and RDBMS administration. I now use Linux on my own systems. Windows gets a VM - that way its easy to get rid of it when it goes sideways.
To all those "old-timers" out there - keep on truckin' - your experience will carry you forward into all of the "new" technologies. It has with me.
