Years ago I came across this pamphlet:
http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/real.programmers.html[^]

It reads:
"Some of the most awesome Real Programmers of all work at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. Many of them know the entire operating system of the Pioneer and Voyager spacecraft by heart. With a combination of large ground-based Fortran programs and small spacecraft-based assembly language programs, they are able to do incredible feats of navigation and improvisation-- hitting ten-kilometer wide windows at Saturn after six years in space, repairing or bypassing damaged sensor platforms, radios, and batteries. Allegedly, one Real Programmer managed to tuck a pattern matching program into a few hundred bytes of unused memory in a Voyager spacecraft that searched for, located, and photographed a new moon of Jupiter."

I wonder what caused the decline of such people.
I wish I knew such a guy to ask him this and that.
Get down get down get down get it on show love and give it up
What are you waiting on?
