Change your advisers! Tell them to get their noses out of their little toy computers and look at the real world. Mainframe sales are bouyant and more "MIPS" are usually sold than the previous year. MIPS need programmers.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

No, no, they're right. I would suggest that no one becomes a mainframe programmer.
