Freudian slip?

I actually heard an add on the radio recently for a company looking to hire Cobol programmers.

Hahaha, didn't catch that when I wrote it 8-) Thanks, your comment made me laugh.

Re. Cobol: I think someone once said something along the lines of: "The mistakes we make will come back to haunt us, indefinitely." Well, maybe not indefinitely, but for a long while; decades. It's funny how we always underestimate how long our systems remain in production use. Technology is very uneven that way: Some (albeit few) people still run on VAX machines today, but we sometimes worry that we won't be able to read our digital content 10 years from now because of newer formats replacing the old. It's very hard to predict what has longevity and what hasn't.
