The excerpt of this badge says: Edited first post that was inactive for 6 months.

But I am a member for just 3 months.

Don't I understand the badge explanation?

Did you edit someone else's post that was six months old at the time? – agf Aug 15 '11 at 10:32
I also won the Excavator badge today, excavator, ha-ha-ha! Thank you SO, nice surprise! ;-) – Tomas Aug 15 '11 at 10:51

It doesn't have to be your own post. You could have edited someone else's post that was 6 months old.

Your SO profile links to information about the badge you've earned, showing that the question for which you earned this badge is this one: Lesser known language constructs of Object Pascal (Delphi).

At the time of your edit, the question had been inactive since November 11, 2008, plenty more than the required 6 months. (See all revisions for comparison purposes.)
