I have you beat....they hired a 64 year old to replace the 65 year old who is retiring at the end of September (that is, 4 more of his working days as I type this; he takes Fridays off)! The good news is that I LOVE this new job and my new boss is terrific! I used to be in IT and he was one of my users I supported. He rose up the ranks the old way...he earned it! He knows what it's like to be a developer. I also am now a database developer (VBA in Access) and I wasn't before I transferred departments (I was a Cache ObjectScript/MUMPS programmer for the IDX/GE Healthcare system we have/had (it was replaced with Epic which does not encourage programmers to muck with their system, so I morphed into a SQL writer...I MISS being a Cache ObjectScript/MUMPS programmer). Oh, he just logged on...time to go drain his brain and document his extensive processes so I can support them all.
