I talked to the guy building codepad, this is what he said:

"That "24 hours" policy was a cop out, in
case storing pastes for longer turned out to be poblematic. It isn't,
and I've never deleted old pastes. I'll remove that warning.

I've also been happy to see the boost folks using codepad, and plan to
do some upgrades for their benefit as soon as I can find time. I'd
love to hear what they need codepad to do."

If anybody has ideas for improving it, you can reach him at sah_at_[hidden]
