I must share this with you guys here on the frontiers of technology It is intended to be amusing for you and sad for me
I just contacted one of my previous supervisors from when I worked and lived in one of the greatest (and lesser known) cities in the US IMO, Annapolis, MD.
I would go back there at the drop of the proverbial hat, but listen, I mean, read what he tells me about his work:
"As for us, we're still coding in Assembler & COBOL. The [one software group] people are writing in C but that's about as advanced as we get..."
Too bad!

If you don't like that one, there's an outfit down here that has the same environment. Lousy pay, cruddy management, major apps written in mainframe assembler and COBOL.
It is convenient to the beach, though.
