Brownfields, and I love them; often have the combined knowledge of multiple people over years. That's code that been maintained and fixed, and got nuggets you never find in a greenfield.

And getting paid to learn from it? Awesome deal Big Grin | :-D

We are working an assembly line; code is mass produced, and a lot of improvements are "mechanical". Nothing wrong with that; I remember the y2k bug, with a lot of "search this and replace with this" instructions. It's honest work, and companies need it. We can't be all hero-programmers; and where's muck, there's brass.

..also, no popups; running just a custom host-file. Though, would be nice if I could turn that host file off for CodeProject, as it is blocking your income.
