What Is the Oldest Code Written Still Running?

RoadWarriorX Who wrote this crap? (903 comments)

The other day, I was investigating some strange behavior in our production environment. I scanned through some piece of code written way back in 2001. After poking around for a couple hours, I find the offending code. The code was somewhat buggy and I found it right away, but fixing it proved to be challenging. After a hour or so, my frustrations got to me. It was so bad that I started to say "who wrote this crap?", only to realize that I wrote it 7 years ago. Alas, I had stumbled upon the oldest running code in my measly existence.
