COBOL is the only language I've managed to totally forget.
Managing IT is an even cruder and less developed art than programming itself. But yes, COBOL will never go away. I wouldn't be terribly surprised if the payroll system for the Enterprise has some old COBOL in it somewhere.
And yes, around 1998, I knew 60-ish programmers who were happily topping up their retirements doing Y2K retrofits in COBOL.
