Did you know that the average age of a Fellow is over 60 and 25% of Fellows are retired.

That's encouraging. Internet stats on older citizens (which I have not defined - you know who you are) show a steady rise in use. Research into Older Citizens on the 'net is here The purpose of OlderCitizens.com is to encourage us to blog not only to expand our digital literacy combatting dementia ;) but for Older Citizens to have a permanent record and voice on the 'net

There's an article today in The Guardian "Welcome to the new dark ages, where only the wealthy can retire"

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/feb/14/wealthy-retire-austerity-pensioners-work

It paints a gloomy picture for retirees. Since retiring officially I receive a basic pension (inc UK) of €250 per week and after taking out expenses I have about €18 per day to live on . This is adequate for my needs but not my wants. This is why I go for free stuff. I just can't afford to pay for services like Discourse. Anyone got the expertise to install it on one of my servers? Its too technical for me. Anyway I for one am enjoying my 'retirement' I have all my time free.
