In the late 1900's....sound funny to anybody else?

Boy, while I was trying to fix my link on previous post I spotted something in the Dogpile article I didn't pick up on the first time around.....

What Is Dogpile and What Does It Do?
In the late 1900's, Dogpile was one of a handful of new search engines that differed significantly from all of the competitors of the day. Dogpile takes a different approach to finding requested search information.


I don't know about anybody else but that little phrase sure did make me feel older................AND I think was the first time I heard the 1990's referred to as the late 1900's...........

Just wondering.

Well, I wondered if it was maybe blonde instead of gray but the picture has a shadow and I wasn't sure. Oops, sorry about that! Either way, blonde, gray, whatever, your hair looks fabulous and you look elegant and I'm sticking with that! And, definitely, not a house dress kinda lady!

Bring on the house dress, slide-on slippers, and the foam curlers!

Now, I'm really going to call it a day. My hair is blonde, not gray, though some of the roots aren't as dark as they used to be. :(

Janet, I know what you mean about those house dresses! Oh, by the way, I love "your" gray; you look really elegant with yours. Mine makes me look washed out but your's doesn't do that at all! If I wore gray as well as you do, I would definitely not color my hair. :-)

Late 1900s? I feel like my grandmother. If I start looking at house dresses, I'm going to call it a day!

No, Jeanese, the author is referring to 1996 as "the late 1900's" (see below) and that's why it was making me feel so old.

Who Created Dogpile?
The Dogpile search engine was born in 1996 as a brainchild of Aaron Flin, a research attorney turned amateur programmer that was apparently upset at the disparity of results that were produced by the various search engines of the time.


No, I think when taken in the context of this whole article, this speaker/author of the article is very young and that's why the way he referred to 1996 hit me.

I, too, don't really mind getting older, really (except for the gray which I do NOT like), but, generally, I am having a blast at this stage of life and don't, I guess, feel my age usually until I hear a comment like this one which gives me a reality check!! So that's, I guess, when the saying you're only as old as you act/feel comes into play, huh? Thank you; you helped me work through this - you should be a psychiatrist!
