The logic is that it's better to patch an existing POS then to write a new one that is elegant, easy to use and extend


Which is true because management will always ask "what's the cost of this patch" in comparison to a rewrite, and like an emu, will have forgotten that it asked that same question 100 times before. And 100 times later, well what do you know, it's still cheaper to do this one patch as compared to rewriting the system. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
