Classic ASP (older site maintenace).

Lately I’ve been charged with adding some functionality to an older internal site done with good all Classic ASP and Java Script.

What a terrible mess. I’m fortunate to have learned to hook up Visual Studio to the code so I can step through the code and find out what makes it tick.

I has been a daunting task changing anything without breaking something else. I’m writing this in the middle of a break from the madness (I exaggerate of course), just so I’ll not run the hall way screaming!

In any case, Option Strict was not turned on, so there are hundreds of variables that are not dimmed. Some are mistyped (typos not the type kind) and forms are well.. malformed!

I hope I never do this to the next guy coming behind me!

BTW, if you are good programmer and you love coding don’t ever forget what it was like when you become a manager and start thinking that everything is easy!
