I'll be 70 in December. About age 50, I started noticing that I
couldn't remember the right word for something. A few years ago I
realized that these were words that I had no idea existed when I was
30. Or maybe I learned them in college, but forgot. The problem with
ageing is that you remember to much. This is especially a problem in
employment where, in the workplace, fads go in cycles. Low level
managers don't know how to handle an employee who remembers the last
time that idea was a fad. 

I remember 6L6, and 6AK5. Its time to move on.
