No not really.

Gee you must have a good memory.
I could never do that.

You miss Fortran !!!.
I can't remember anything about it now except all those punch cards that knocked me around so much.

I do get a tiny bit nostalgic about some of them.
But it is more about the good memories of the times than the language.
