I guess it was just rhetorical. Imagine: what a long period is ten 
years of computer history! 10 years is the mystical age that makes a

of 119 years to see what will happen ... ;-))

Mmmh, as for the place: there is. But I'm not sure whether people 
want their sketches to be published, anonymously or not. 
What do the others think about it?
