Is that Internet "decades"? Or "dog years"? In other words, not since we last coded such a thing in the hoary ancient past of 5 years ago. C'mon, CGI is only 21 years clock time old. Let's cut the bombast, okay?
No one *now-a-days* would code like they did years ago. Great, going forward. Problem is, who funds the effort to fix things coded 5 or 10 years ago?
What is the total technical debt accumulated across this industry, anyway? How many person-millenia would that come to?
