There are 2 million Cobol programmers in the world. Thats a fact! (thanks Katie)

As an old (well relatively) COBOL programmer it is good to see it is still in demand. I personally haven't coded in COBOL for about 7-8 years, but it was one of the best languages I have ever used. OK it was a bit wordy but it could do just about everything and, if written properly, was just about self-documenting.
Amazing to see that even nowadays there are still more active Cobol programmers than any other language and that more transactions are done in Cobol than Web pages are served.
