I'm from the beautiful little town of Belgrade, Maine USA. I used to be a COBOL programmer!! I worked for the US Treasury, worked for a company that went around the US writing and installing Registry of Deeds systems, worked for a couple of banks (boring!!!), worked for WANG Labs in the manufacturing systems group and many more. I've had a wonderful career but retired about 2 years ago. I found that getting older limited my learning capacity and I just couldn't get a handle on the new programming. I love this newsletter, but, to be perfectly honest, I have absolutely no idea about a lot of the stuff you kids talk about! So remember, when you write about new stuff, use the "old lady" factor so I don't feel so dumb!! All you kids keep up the great work you're doing - you are our future!!
