When your code is nearly old enough to vote

My talk at this year's linux.conf.au was "When Your Codebase Is Nearly Old Enough To Vote": a case study of Dreamwidth and all the horrible horrible things we've found down there underneath the couch cushions, along with the lessons we've learned about when to rewrite them and when to leave them alone.

You can view the YouTube recording (sorry, no transcript), or check out the slides!

I enjoyed this a lot (and learned things).

I would be happy to have a try at transcribing if that would be helpful, though it would take a while!

I will make it a project then. Does emailing you a plain text of what I come up with work as a delivery method?

Please also consider posting the transcript under a cut on the entry and/or in the video description, if you can.

Although as I mentioned, the auto-captions work ok here.
