> I wrote X.25 software in Fortran:-(. We had some machine specific routines

One of my first professional jobs after college was with a company that 
created after-market hardware and software for Apollo workstations.  Despite 
having a good Pascal, I was tasked with (and completed) a port of a 
scientific word processor package (WordMarc), all in Fortran (77, at least). 
Since I ended up being pretty familiar with both the language and 
environment, I used it again to throw together a simple 8080 assembler in 
about a day, too.
