well I'm not senior but I already planned on the third route , fix the bugs and roll on. But it does take more than minutes for my newbie brain to unravel all this crap...

but I will simply fix things as they come up, and try to keep to better practices when I write new additions to the project.
having said that, where do you draw the line at rebuilding something vs try to patch in new code in with the old spaghetti? That's part of my issues. I see a better(and much simpler) way to do some things, but to do that I would have to do some major gutting back down the line. But simply tying in some new code to that crap is almost as bad... Sigh | :sigh: Guess I will take it aline of code at a time and just do what seems best at the moment depending on deadline for new items vs amount of rework etc..
Programming is a race between programmers trying to build bigger and better idiot proof programs, and the universe trying to build bigger and better idiots, so far... the universe is winning.
