Am I a dinosaur?

I will freely admit, in the world of computing, I am a dinosaur. I earn my living writing COBOL programs on a mainframe computer. I try and learn as much as I can about other operating systems and how to program them, but they've never really made their way onto my CV. I just like to keep my mind active and at least understand the potential of what's out there.

So, if I'm a dinosaur, what does that make the two people that, today, have asked me what a Gigabyte is? If they were both trainees of some sort I could understand. Unfortunately I know one of them has been in I.T. for at least 12 years and the other quite probably a lot longer.

If that's how the world sees mainframe programmers, I certainly am doomed.
