You've got me beat by a decade or so, at least for anything that
constitutes still-executable source code.  I've got some QBasic from
the middle-90s that'll still run inside an emulator / VM, at any rate.
Mostly what I learn from looking at it now is that I'm not nearly as
much better a programmer as I would like.

These last few years, I've been thinking something along the lines of
"I should have the same home directory for the rest of my life."  I'm
done throwing stuff away.  What's the real gain in abandoning

I wonder what I should be investing in right now, hardware- or
service-wise, to make that a reality.
