I'd say dumping the outdated technology was the significant change. That's
not about your age. No one cares how much you know about stuff no one uses
any more, which is also probably stuff you haven't used in years. Updating
your resume is more than just adding on the newest job to the top of the
list. (Don't forget to refresh your posting at least once a week, too.)
