As One Who Does A Lot With Dinosaur Computing

And Keeping Software Running Long Beyond Some Software Company's Expiration Date

Once again the genius behind xkcd strikes again.

I recently got great help with some websites discussing hardware from ten years ago. And I worry that our collective wisdom will evaporate as people's websites decay and people no longer pay for the hosting and even the Wayback Machine doesn't get funded because too much stuff is too archaic by someone's standards.

Yeah, I worry a lot...
