    It's kind of depressing that I could be working with something a little newer or a bit more interesting, but it pays the bills and it's pretty easy. :hs:

    I started out as a Cobol programmer, 1994 up to Y2K.
    Shifted to project management.

    I was surprised it was still being used. I should've read the job posting a little closer.

    I took a COBOL class in college... Don't remember a thing from it though.

    Me too, I instantly thought I'd never see this again. Even our teacher told this that it was strictly a business language that is slowly going away.
