Yay! at last some of my thoughts perfectly match here.
I have done programming long back say in mid 80's in assembly, dbase
and the such, in Fortran in late 80's, Pascal and c++ inearly 90's,
Foxpro, Clipper and some Oracle SQL, PL/SQL and in mid and late 90's
and early part of the century -- I still remember my tyrst with the
Y2K -- some bash scripting in 90's of of the late my programming has
mostly like a typist typing out e-mails, doing spell checks, pointing
