I'm an amateur programmer living in Devon, UK. I am an active member and a moderator at OSDev.org, although I do not have an operating system project in progress at present due to time constraints. I write a few utilities for my workplace as and when needed. My language of choice for our Windows machines is C# (currently using VS 2010 Express). For portable apps and my OSDev efforts, I use C++ / x86(-64) assembly in the Eclipse IDE and compile using GCC on Cygwin.

Apologies for the incorrect assumption. Re-thinking this from your comment, of course the expansion would not have to be super luminal - it would simply have to be close to that of light speed. Is that correct?

Ok - I'll try to do it without getting in a muddle! If the light has taken 13bn years to travel to us, it started its journey 13bn years ago. But assuming expansion at light speed, we were only 0.75bn light years away from that object when the light started its journey to us. So how has the light taken 13bn years to reach us?
