I also learnt Pascal in university (in France) !
But about the pascal poster, the site is incredibly slow for me too. 
It's probably connected to an 11K dial-up modem, prehistoric speed for a prehistoric language ;)

When I took AP Computer Science in high school, it was Pascal.  Now it's
Java, and I fear for the future of our profession.

Not sure whether I've seen that poster, though -- it still hasn't
finished loading, that's an incredibly slow site.
