I work with automated control systems. I have been doing this for a long time. The manufacturers have been around for a long time, too and the products are constantly changing.
In my business I work with other vendors a lot, especially the companies that integrate different subsystems into a primary controller.

So every now and then I get a call from some young person at one of these companies that goes something like this. "We're doing worked over at the old Smith place and Mr. Smith gave me your number. He said you programmed his WidgetMaster system back in 1985. Could you send over the IP address info and associated HTML files for his project?

And I just laugh and laugh.
