That means uploads are no more than 24 years old in 2100 and have no real track record as to their potential longevity. They're definitely playing catch-up to organics in that department. Without computers made out of living metal I don't really see how they could.
Spoken like a man who prefers to use his brain.

Nothing that will lengthen my life. Anything that will make me healthier while here.

(Ideally, I'd want the Morally Ambiguous Fairy to give me a potion that gives me perfect health for the rest of my life, which is half as long as it would otherwise have been. But that would be over in GURPS Magic or In Nomine, not THS.)

Void Dancer. I plan to live and work in space at the turn of the next century.

Those goals (in the TS setting) don't require genetic transformation. The Zero G adaptaion and the radiation repaor can all be done by nano.

Recent pain convinces me that a bio-mod that released anti-inflammatories made by your body into your bloodstream at will would be grand. Reducing the capacity for inflammation would probably be dangerous. Thus being able to deal with inflammation afterward would be the better choice.
