10 skills I will likely never use again
I learned to code in Pascal during high school. I have never used it since.
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.

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 😔

8. Memorizing phone numbers
