I must confess, I did 12 years of Mainframe COBOL - last logged on 99273. Yes I converted LOTS of dates from Julian prior to Y2K.
"Every Byte is Precious"*
I still get to annually touch a few stray batch modules (ported to AS400 COBOL (tho CL is an fugly step-child to JCL, the COBOL works pretty much as-was with a few obvious changes to the Data Definition section)).
*to tune of "Every Sperm is Sacred"
As a Contractor, I am most proficient at COBOL. There are other languages I ~prefer~ to code in, but I've been coding in COBOL , on and off, since 1980 (started with the '67 standards). My last contract ended almost 11 months ago. I've been on the short-list for 3 different Contracts since February, all for a significant drop in fees. Nobody seems to want to commit.
I find it très amusant that California's payroll system is that antiquated.
