Let us pray

Posted 27 November 2009 - 09:42 PM

Hello all,

everybody who knows me knows that I am quite active in the Java forum

Why I am so active in that forum ? This has been discussed a lot before in different topics. I love Java and because I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere where IT jobs are rare and I had, for surviving, to accept a job writing C code.

To keep up to date with Java I am really active in the Java forum.

But this morning I had a job interview in a shop one hour drive from my place... they look for old timers like me to translate "old" mainframe Cobol code to Java.

If I am hired, I might be less involved here... really hope I'll get that job
The interviewer was really impressed by my involment here.... at 56 that would be my last job move

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Well, it will be sad to have you "less active" but I wish you good luck on this job and hope you enjoy translating that Cobol. But, what happens when you're done, maintaining it?

Let us know how it goes! :)

You make it sound like working in C is horrible.

I'm not trolling the topic. He's the one that first made a comment about C. And he might not have even meant it that way, hence my statement. He probably just doesn't like writing in it, yet understands it and uses it as a tool to get things done. Furthermore, you make it sound like you're the one being a troll by accusing me of trolling. The italic bold text and angry face are the tools of a troll.

I go on your history.

Summary of most of your posts in the lounge area (sometimes an image of fire):

Actually, tools of someone that emphasizes words, even in text.

The tank of fail is different from my fiery image macros. The tank of fail is a direct comical response to... Er, I'm not quite sure. My fire images are usually my side commentary to make a comical spin on an argument I'm not involved in, yet is filled with "flame" comments. However, flame image macros do not even make up a fraction of my entire posts in the caffeine lounge, I'm afraid you are mistaken there.

Because it is the caffeine lounge of course and it's similar to making noise to disrupt a heated argument. Other members use methods like random comments, other types of image macros, or similar kinds of humor.


Mostly because its the caffeine lounge.

Translating Cobol to JAVA? How does that work? It sounds like you would have fun though.

Hope all goes well for you pbl. You should ask for hazard pay for having to clean up the toxic waste which is COBOL. :D
