Is there some old-school programmer available around here?

Just saw this ad today at my Institute's door. Rough translation:

Interim programmer sought

Requisites:

  • High school
  • One year of experience
  • Theorical and practical exams on the area
  • Familiarity handling electronic equipment, such as computers, perforators/punchers, terminals and similar.

[Yes, this is a joke post. I don't know how anybody is using such an obsolete job description. A job description at least three decades out of date]

[Well, yes, I understand it, because I knowhow that particular union works. But I cannot accept it is for real]

[...And no, please don't apply for the job. You will be miserable in the unlikely event you are chosen]
