Opsimath: one who learns, or begins to study, later in life: [^].

I started about age forty-one, programming (you guessed it) BASIC, and then 6809 assembly language, then Pascal, then Lisp, SmallTalk, then PostScript, then on to Visual Basic and Excel<=>VBA, finally, reaching a fantasized nirvana with .NET and C#.

As this aging disintegratingly-animated package of meat-over-bones approaches (too soon) his 923rd. lunar cycle on this planet: he experiences it as wondrous, indeed, to behold, after thirty-years in the technical game, Visual Studio 2013, update 3, taking as long to complete simple actions in the design-ui as once measly 8-bit computers of yore used to traverse a doubly-nested for-loop ... that is: when Visual Studio 2013 doesn't crash on launch.

Of course that is an invidious comparison, and I will flagellate myself in expiation as soon as I post this.

cheers, Bill
