Surveying Records

My wife and I were in Rochester, New York, for a couple days last week to visit one of my aunts. One night we had dinner with her and one of my cousins. At one point the question came up of where Rochester gets its water from. My cousin mentioned that when he was younger, he had worked for the government office that has the surveying records for the water pipes, so he could say with some certainty where the water comes from. Some of these pipes are pretty old. One was recorded as being "30 paces from where the bear fell".

I wonder if any Solaris code will still be around in 200 years. Will it look as quaint as this surveying record?

Comments:

Except it will probably be something like: "Compiled about half an hour after drinking a bottle of Fat Tire while talking on IRC."
