I did and I am! It is still widely used in healthcare (although some companies allow more programmer access than others!) and as I understand it, the financial sector uses it widely, too. It's a great language. Intersystems now calls it Cache ObjectScript, but when I learned it, it was MUMPS. It's great at handling large amounts of data efficiently.

Really, I'm thrilled that there are other people who even know the language exists. I was starting to feel like (I was gong to say dinosaur, but that would lead credence to your question so I'll say I was feeling like) a unicorn. Yeah, a magical, unique, imaginary unicorn! Thanks for the laugh.
