    Not sure I was ever really at the top of my game even when I was, well, at the top of my game.

    Aside from 1999 when I had to make one of the systems I'd developed Y2K compliant, I don't think I'd cut any code since about 1992. I was more into Project Management and ICT Procurement by then, which saw me through to retirement in 2014.

    For many years now, Irish weather reports have used the preferred SI Pascal unit for pressure, referring to hectopascals, rather than millibars.

    Never yet met a barometer that didn't respond to a good clout with a sledge hammer. Millibars, pascals, psi, inches of mercury … good clout with a hammer sorts em all out. :teef:

    I learnt PASCAL in my first year of college, Cobol in the second. At uni they taught us ada, I got bored and got pissed instead.
