      companies were dying to hire COBOL programers most of whom were retired or nearing retirement. But, thankfully they saved us from disaster that was predicted to occur on New Years Eve 2000.

      It certainly put a lot of money into dinosaurs pockets and I don't have a problem with that especially considering that many of these folks were coming back after being laid off because in the minds of the employers they were too old to cut the mustard any more.

      Honesty pays, but it doesn't seem to pay enough to suit some people. Kin Hubbard
