  1. I had to support RPG II on an IBM 36 for a couple years for a client – I don’t miss that one at all.

  2. Dear God, I’ve programmed in all those. Nearly all of them because I was forced to, though. FORTRAN being the exception since I needed raw speed at the time and to this day no other language comes close for serious scientific computing.

    None of those are languages I would recommend as worth learning these days without serious coercion (serious money or booze required — lots and lots of booze for when you’ve spent a day wrangling with an APL keyboard).
