Tradition I can dig

via Techdirt:

People have plenty of different traditions when it comes to getting rid of old software code. Some open source it. Some let it whither and fade away into obscurity. But that doesn't have enough closure for some. Apparently, the techies at Lexis-Nexis like to hold complete funerals for dead code. They literally print out the source code on paper... and bury it. Now that this info is public, any bets on how long it takes someone to sneak on by to try to dig up the old (almost certainly useless) code?

I can relate and sympathize.
