I know, i know,... "define, how to count: comments yes/no? blank lines yes/no? what counts as line?"

Just a rough estimate, plain counting the lines of text in a source file, inlucing comments, blanks, multi-line-statements and all...

Did you ever think about your life-time lines output? Can you roughly count back, from the beginning?

Are you over 1 million? 10 million? how many per year?

I am asking this, because we have a funny discussion running here in the office about the size of the first Wolfenstein 3D, MS-DOS and Windows 3.11 --- their source lines and the sizes of todays apps and OS'es, as everybody can check out Android source code if he likes to and lots of software is open nowadays.
