Since a hundred years ago there was no such thing as computer code
(or computers) postulating what might be true even 1000 years (or 200)
into the future (other than Paul's geological/astronomical/... calculation
where things change slowly) is kind of brave.

Personally I'd expect that anything computer related from today would
be about as relevant then as a fletcher is today (ie: there are a
few enthusiasts for whom there is still a demand, but for 99% of the
world, we'd never notice if they all just vanished...)
