Meeting someone on the train

I started talking to someone on the train on the way home from the MSDN event, about 5 minutes before I got off. He happened to be on his way back from some VB.NET training in London. He used to be a contract COBOL programmer, but having moved to Uckfield, found there's not much COBOL work in Sussex.

As I've said previously, I like talking tech with other programmers, so it's a shame I didn't speak to him earlier on the journey. Still, Uckfield is a small place...
