Well, I know this thread is a little stale, but I had to pull the average up some. I'm 52, expecting 53 in a couple of weeks. Wrote my first FORTRAN in around '68. I'll program as long as I can. See no reason to totally quit.
I've got a friend who first wrote code in the 1950's, is a decade older than I, and still working.
Later folks, Guy

int mikeBrueschAge;
if (x == 4)
mikeBrueschAge = Math.pow (x, 3) - (8 * x) - 7;
Or if f(x) = 25/24 * x^4, then I'm it's 4th derivative...
Or I'm (4! + 1)...4 factorial + 1...
Or I'm the sum of the first 7 terms in the Fibonacci Sequence minus the sum of the of the first, third, and fifth terms...
Or a quarter of a century, 2.5 decades...
My head hurts, I'm 25...
