Reliable system was so reliable, no one noticed its licence had expired... until it was too late

We have an Archimedes (yes, from the 80s) that still sees use testing equipment that comes in for maintenance.

Its running software to do the testing, and we have no way of moving it to a more modern machine.

Though I hear that there might be a new re-write of the system to remove the dependency on a machine for which we have no spares... sometime...
