10 skills I will likely never use again

    1. Pascal

    I learned to code in Pascal during high school. I have never used it since.

    program HelloWorld;
    begin
    writeln('Hello, World!');
    end.

    2. Audit Command Language

    Audit Command Language (ACL) is a software tool used for data analysis and data management. It is designed to help auditors, accountants, and other professionals in the field of finance and accounting to analyze large volumes of data quickly and accurately. Learned this at my second career job because it was standard at work. Given all the elegant free modern data analysis tools and languages available - I would not use ACL again.

    * Start of script
    PROC PRINT
    'Hello, World!'
    ENDPROC
    * End of script

    3. Assembler

    I used to crack software when I was 14 years old for fun. I don't feel a compelling need to revisit that.

    mov ah, 9
    mov dx, offset msg
    int 21h

    4. Microsoft Project

    Considering all the superior project management tools available, like Clickup, Asana, and Monday.com. I doubt I would ever touch Microsoft Project again.

    5. Programming a VCR

    Programming a VCR was like trying to decipher an ancient hieroglyphic code, except the code kept changing randomly every time you pressed a button, and the hieroglyphs were written in tiny, illegible font on a remote that had more buttons than a spaceship control panel.

    6. Managing a BBS

    Prior to the internet, when everyone was using dial-up, they would connect to Bulletin Board Systems, which were like independent websites or communities that were rendered in ASCII and ANSI text. I was an admin for a BBS for a short time. BBSs are now obsolete.

    I miss ANSI art 😔

    7. Handwriting letters

    8. Memorizing phone numbers

    9. Manually checking spelling mistakes and grammar

    With the advent of spell checking and grammar and now AI writers the need for manual checking is not needed

    10. Finding a book at the library using card catalogs
