Re: Yeah -- us old foks ain't worth it no more.

This old fart grew up speaking milspec jargon, growing up as I did with a US Navy dad & a former US Navy mom. In a few cases, I invented the term that was repurposed in the process. Shame I never got an opportunity to meet Grace Hopper. Never learned COBOL but then again, I didn't need to learn it. It's verbosity was a God send.
