Getting old

With my birthday a few days ago and other things coming up to steal whatever spare time I had, there was simply no time to get to the optimisation and cleaning up of BGLayers. As middle aged programmers are treated the same way as the elderly I wonder if I have the right to blame my age for not finishing part 9? To be honest, I don't understand the trend to hire younger programmers. While they may be more willing to put in overtime, their lack of experience means that things that would take me a few hours to write will take them a few weeks. Still, I hope to have the next part ready for next week, and since Tarot is using this code and is being released next month I have extra incentive to find the time to get the work done.
