Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Twenty years is such a long time; my advice is that you take advantage of the vast experience that you have attained throughout that period. Just do software development as a side-dish. Since you are considering going in the direction of Microsoft, C# and VB.NET would be ideal for you.
