I think I still have my college RPG IV book, and maybe the COBOL book too... :)

I was somewhat surprised to be learning those even though it was the early 2000s - though in retrospect COBOL was great for learning some fundamentals, and RPG was great for learning I never wanted to work on an AS400 ever again.

I could go on about VB6, but I already feel old enough.

Hey, sometimes you've gotta learn the fundamentals to really get a grasp of new stuff!

And yep, definitely had some things I've looked at and well "hahaha NOPE". That's also valuable. 😂
