As far as my expertise in computers/programming goes, I've certainly lost a lot of skill since college. I learned Pascal, C, Visual Basic, Assembly code, Matlab, and probably some others that I'm forgetting. These days, I almost exclusively use LabVIEW at work. I HATED it at first, but now I find it really really useful. I just wish I were more proficient with it.
When not working in the lab, I work around my little city farm. I raise chickens and bees and have a big vegetable garden. I'm trying to automate as much as the farm as possible but haven't actually gotten any projects off the ground yet. I have dreams of having an automatic irrigation system complete with moisture sensors and programmable water requirements for individual plants. Also some sort of automation in the chicken coop - closing the door at night and opening in the morning, alerting me to when eggs are present, regulating feed amounts, automatic waterer etc. But for the time being, it's all labor by hand!
