My family’s house is documented back to the 14th century (we are entitled to carry shield and spear in defense of the city walls of Kulmbach ;-), I live in a town founded by the Romans in 89 (and made a civitas in 98), my last car was a Saab 900i from 1990 (sold last year, still running), my work Macs are a PB G4 and a PowerMac G5 (and I sometimes use a Quadra 840AV).  Even so I’m using a constantly updated TeXlive 2009.  ;-)

The conception of OLD and NEW are very different in Europe vs. the United States. I remember visiting a small town in England where the NEW Church was built in the 1600s; that would be very OLD in the United States and, most likely, would no longer exist.

Good Luck,
