QBASIC screenshot
You are 'programming in QBASIC'. This programming
language (of which the acronym stands for
'Quick Beginners' All-purpose Symbolic
Instruction Code'), which is so primitive that
it cannot easily be used for any purpose
involving the Internet nor even sound, was
current more than a decade ago.

You are independent, in a good way. When something
which you need cannot be found, you make it
yourself. In writing and in talking with
people, you value clarity and precision; your
friends may not realize how important that is.
When necessary, you are prepared to be a
mediator in conflicts between your friends.
You are very rational, and you think of things
in terms of logic and common sense.
Unfortunately, your emotionally unstable
friends may be put off by your devotion to
logic; they may even accuse you of pedantry and
insensitivity. Your problem is that
programming in QBASIC has been obsolete for a
long time.


What obsolete skill are you?

That particular survey is scary-accurate. It really nailed SpousalUnit and I.

Well, you haven't. But the phrases that stood out for me were:

When something which you need cannot be found, you make it yourself.

When necessary, you are prepared to be a mediator in conflicts between your friends.

You are very rational, and you think of things in terms of logic and common sense.

That's pretty, well, you. And those are good things! :)

I was "French" - the language. Hmmm ... this is just rife with Freudian commentary.

Well, to paraphrase Freud:

Sometimes the French are just the French.

Of course, when your talking about kissing, tickling, and fried potatoes, it's a wonderful thing.

Bah. Now I'm hungry.
