QuestionDoes anyone miss programming in old languages? Pin

I recently got pulled in to help out on a 30+ years old mainframe project written in COBOL. It was a bit of shock to realise how much I remembered, since it had been 30+ years since I last worked with COBOL!

I occasionally miss my old FORTRAN days (most recently Fortran 77 rather than FORTRAN IV) but I never have yearned to do COBOL (or even PL/1) again.

Nostalgic thoughts?
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
