The biggest challenge in getting COBOL programmers is the lack of available training. There used to be several excellent technical training programs available commercially, plus colleges. Now? Nothing. When I was last in corporate we developed a "farm team" program to bring in entry-level programmers and taught them COBOL. It was a great way into a corporate career path. It died out from lack of interest since internal turnover among COBOL programmers was nil - right up until they started to retire. The company now struggles to maintain legacy COBOL code as the staff ages out. It forced some significant expense to rewrite systems in a newer language but left much of the back-end in place.
Like it or not, mainframe COBOL still processes a significant amount of data behind that web front-end.
There is really large payroll processing company based in the US - the one that likely pays half the folks on this board - that still processes it using a COBOL mainframe system.
Thanks, will see if I can do that. I'm using dry shop-vac filter paper currently.
I also saw a post (not here) where someone tested 2 layers of "blue shop paper towels" and said there were as effective as N95 filter element.
Issue with using some types of paper is that if you wear the mask for a couple of hours the moisture in your breath will saturate the paper and it then restricts airflow to the point where it's too difficult to breath.
