Yet even more news about Cobol

A while back Slashdot posted another article about Cobol - "Cobol Job Market Heating Up"

Seriously is Cobol really that prevalent that there could be a serious need for Cobol programmers?

If that's the case then here are a few Cobol related links to help those new to Cobol get going with the newest old craze :)

4004 calculator replica

Slashdot recently posted an article titled "A Replica of the First 4004 Calculator" about vintage computer enthusiast Bill Kotaska building a replica of the Busicom 141-PF.

Give the article a read and also take a look at both Bill's site and the 4004 page.

I wish I had time for a project like this :)
