Robert was kind enough to let me post to this great blog - here is my first effort!

You may or may not know that there is a fabulous website dedicated to the song 99 bottles of beer. The idea being to show how to print out the lyrics to this song in as many languages as possible. Traditional COBOL is OK at this, but I have to admit - a bit clunky. So, our team at Micro Focus spent a few minutes showing just how clean an implementation in COBOL for .net (and for that matter other managed environments - but that is another store) can be.
Well, today my submission (though a team effort) got accepted, here is the link to the 99 bottles website:http://www.99-bottles-of-beer.net/language-micro-focus-cobol-for-.net-2173.html
Also, here is a link to a post discussing the concepts and giving some tweaks:http://nerds-central.blogspot.com/2009/09/cobol-for-net-better-than-c-at.html
