I don't need to make a lot of money before I retire. I turn 65, the canonical age of retirement in the U.S., in 2037. I will be one of those old farts who still programs in Perl and C and will be hired to fix all the old "E-2**31" bugs. I'll be paid somewhere on the order of $1 billion over the year to fix various bugs -- many of which I am currently creating -- and then retire comfortably in Afghanistan (which will be turned into a Middle Eastern vacation spa around 2012).
