re: If your manager told you to spend the next two weeks working on any "fun and fulfilling" project at work, what would you do? VIEW POST


Microsoft is currently jumping up and down on the grave of VB6 with hobnail boots yelling, "Die! Die! Die!". HOPL runs on a language called Protium that was written in VB6 (with subsystems written in others like Ada, Fortran and Perl).

Eventually HOPL is going to stop running. With the successor to Protium (called Peloton) still a while away, I would want to convert the site to run on some other language so that the historical material stays available.

Even though my manager is never going to say that to me, I've already started researching how.
