Grin, I cut my teeth in assembly and used to teach 'BASIC' but like all of
us, what you don't use, you lose. I recall little of assembly than 'POP AX'
and basic structures of 'Basic' as in 'if then .. else'.
You know what's a real PITA? Converting between HTML versions. I have a 50

sharepoint 2010. Not gonna be fun. CSS looks easy though. An important
