Legacy.txt

We found the coolest thing on one of our servers today… legacy.txt, which describes the history of the application… From the first admin through buyouts and new admins…

Having come into this environment 7+ years after its creation, reading these names is lile… reading about relatives. These people have sat here and plunked away at these very servers… I bet if I check, I’ll see remnants of old accounts… home directories that were kept around… initials that I’ll now recognize…

If I turn over an application, I’ll have to leave something like this behind…
