30 years or so as a professional software engineer, working in computer-aided design, petrochemicals, semiconductor manufacturing and publishing.

Large amounts of experience with languages and systems now largely defunct. Come to think of it, most of my past employers are gone too.

More recent experience (the last decade or so) in C++, Python, JavaScript, HTML/CSS.

The book is a Second German Reader by Elisabeth May (Kindle edition, 2012). Given that it's supposed to be teaching me modern German, I think "möchte" rather than "möchten" must be a mistake. "Sie" is definitely meant to mean "you".

Okay, the full sentences are: "Möchte Sie Banknoten mit Bildern von Kaninchen?", and "Welche möchte Sie lieber - mit Bildern von Kaninchen oder von Hunden?" They are part of a conversation, so it's definitely meant to be 'Sie' rather than 'sie'.
