Hmmm...  I had a brief infatuation with COBOL in 1984 but if we're 
talking medieval languages I much preferred PL/1, and would probably 
have got on just fine with Algol 68.

Never mind... In 1984 we were told that we couldn't use PL/1 because at 
500k the library was too big to fit on disk. In 1988 we had microsoft C 
which came on about 20 floppies.  Bummer !
