Ron,

Chill... please. Obviously COBOL code is still around, or there wouldn't have been such a demand for COBOL programmers to deal with Y2K.

But it's an OLD programming language, been around a long time. As you pointed out. And that's the timeframe I coded in it as well.

Joe's comment referred to the length of time I'd been in IT. My response was to that.

It's the weekend, relax.

Rachel
