Gotta love that - especially when your client or supervisor doesn't understand the ramifications of working through a Big Ball of Mud.

TBH the offending code in one of projects is code I didn't write but am using under a compatible license. Except this code is battle tested and I've used it past projects. Somehow the inputs are different I think? but I can't pinpoint where/how. The issue is I don't understand the algorithm being used, and it is very complicated, so the routine is pretty opaque from a debugging standpoint.

So on some level I can relate in my present situation. It's not a big ball of mud, but in some ways it may as well be. D'Oh! | :doh:
Real programmers use butterflies
