Default Oldest and youngest?

I've recently got both my father (77 years old) and my 3rd son (14 years old) running GIMPS on their PCs.

I'm pretty sure that they are neither the oldest nor the youngest, but who is, I wonder? And can anyone beat that age spread of 63 years within one GIMPSter family?

I got my little brother running it on his computer when he was 10.

RTFQ! He didn't ask about the youngest user.

12 - 10 = 2 isn't a very big spread.

Surely there are others who can beat 10 years old. How many of you have got your kid's PC running Prime95?

Errr, maybe I can take youngest person to run this on their own (i.e., not at the provoking of older geek relatives). I started this when I was 14.
