comment we were planning this party from Feb?
No, not quite right. Either: "We have been planning this party since February" or "We were planning this party as far back as February." or with more rewording, "We started planning this party [back] in February"

comment Word for: older than legacy
But obsolete means it's no longer used, whereas OP is looking for a word to describe code that is still there for compatibility reasons.

comment Word for: older than legacy
As you say, legacy means an older version that is still there for compatibility reasons. But then you say you have some older code that is there for compatibility reasons but you can't call it legacy because it's too old?!? Wouldn't that just be "older legacy code?" And really if I were to define legacy code I'd say it was code that was inherited from an earlier version of the software. It may not necessarily be there for compatibility reasons; it could be there because it works and it costs too much to rewrite.

comment What does “dredging deep for steel” mean?
It's really hard to say without more context. But could it be possible that India Cathcar's piece was something he was not looking forward to, and so had to steel himself to the task?

comment Sometimes “you don't want to do that” means “I dont want you to do that.” Is there any opposite saying?
Could you describe in other words what you think the opposite might mean? The obvious one is, "you're gonna want to do that."

comment Sometimes “you don't want to do that” means “I dont want you to do that.” Is there any opposite saying?
I doesn't mean "I don't want you to do that" it means I know something about what's going to happen if you do that that and I don't think you'll like it."

comment Is using a sentence as a subject grammatically correct?
While it can be done, attack them directly won't do anything is not a good sentence. But attacking them directly won't do anything does work as a sentence.

comment Why do people say “Go down this road” or “Go down this corridor” instead of saying “Go straight”
Go straight means don't take any turns onto other roads, and usually works best when the road you're on is pretty straight too.

comment Why do people say “Go down this road” or “Go down this corridor” instead of saying “Go straight”
Imagine if they said, "Just go straight down this road..."

comment When should the words “usefulness” versus “utility” be used?
If you don't like the way a sentence sounds after you've written it, reword it. To see how useful this is....
