I've been doing this computing lark for quite a long time and still like to get my hands dirty crafting beautifully manicured code.

What I don't do, nor do I recall ever having to do, is create a custom sort algorithm. I don't think I could without looking it up; oh, I know what many of them are called and recall, vaguely, the workings but I doubt I could articulate any of them without looking it up first.

There are probably many other 'skills' I learnt in the dim and distant past but have now forgotten due to lack of use (like Visual Basic Smile | :) ).

What did you learn and never get around to using or, in fact, ever need to use?
