I'll be 26 this year. I always thought I was on the younger side of Slackware users.

I disagree with those that recommend Slackware is for a particular type of users. Anyone who needs cronjobs to remind him/her of the due medication can use Slackware :-)
Thank you.
This made me laugh out loud.

I'll be 42 in a few weeks.

I'll be 22 next month. I've been using slackware since I was 16 or 17 though.

Funny, really. I originally tried it because people kept talking about how difficult it was, and I wanted to see for myself. Never expected I would love it so much it became my primary linux distribution for years to come.

Im 21.

I discovered Slackware when I had to set an Nagios server up during an internship.

The sysadmin was a Slacker since near to the beginning of the distro.

The server was built with the 13.37 version and I now run -Current on my personal laptop.

I've always been attracted by KISS distro such as Slackware

I still keep a slide rule in my desk drawer and brief case.

But some days I can't quite remember how to use it to convert from metric to binary...

Very cool stuff
"gimme a beige PC, green text, black screen" well my pc is beige, ATX tower.
And sometimes I do use green font with black bg, just for fun.
"and 64 kB of memory (thats plenty!)" I still have my DGT-100, a TRS clone, with 64kB(or 48, don't remember exactly)

It has assembly and basic, I can do some stuff in basic but assembly is too much
advanced for me (well if I started learning assembly in 1983, today maybe I could be the Assembly Master)

I really don't know how to use it just learned addition and subtraction

Is it a Smith Corona with a hard case and a black/red cloth ribbon?
