Depends on the audience, I have some very close friends know a range that's fairly close, but besides my boss and HR, know one else knows. You don't want to throw that around in the workplace. Its pretty frowned upon I think.
When I go to interviews I always give a range, always on the higher side.

well, i have just been offered a new job and i am amazed at how many people say "congratulations!" and "how much does it pay?" all in one breath.

I think the whole code of silence around salaries is silly. If you don't know what other people are making how do you know if you are being paid fairly? I think it's healthy to know what different people in the workforce make... and I'm not jsut talking about discussing salary with co-workers but also with firends and family etc,
it's this whole "don't talk about what you make" attitude that allows employers to under-pay people and not be accountable for their bonus and salary structures
