Since this seems to be two questions, I'll answer in two parts:
Code comments: I use comments very sparingly, really only when the code is complicated. Yesterday I wrote more comments than I typically write in a month, describing for myself the layout/elements of several multi-dimensional arrays. I do find that I comment more these days that I used to.

How old is my code? My company's flagship product was released to the public at a trade show in the summer of 2K. Since development started around 1.5 years before that, there is code that dates back to '98 when I got hired...so around 25 years ago! OMG | :OMG:
