Mine go back to sometime around 1980.  I have customer records that go 
back to 1987.  Curiously, we got a note from a fellow needing an update 
to CopyQM.  He registered his product in 1992.  We found it and provided 
him with a 1999 update--the last we did before the sale of the software 
(the terms of sale allow us to support existing customers).

Just keep carrying the stuff forward.  I've even provided other authors 
with copies of their own source code after they'd lost track of it.

You never know when having complete archives will come in handy.  But 
you already know that, Al!
