If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It: Ancient Computers in Use Today | PCWorld

This is a marvelous story.  It shows one of the important ways that computing is different from other modern systems.  Old computer programs don't fall apart like old bridges do.  In fact, the older a program is, the more likely it is to be more effective than a new program, since old bugs have probably been found and fixed.
