GeneralUp to my neck in legacy code / pile of manure Pin

<RANT mode="ON"/>
The customer changed something in their SAP system a while ago and low and behold something in our code base that communicates with said SAP system stopped working. There are 5 logfiles none of which contain any useful information. I'm the poor sod who now has figure out what exactly broke, why this crap no longer works and fix it, say, until yesterday.

The problem is the culprit that manufactured this pile of manure is no longer with us and can thus not be properly punished.

Dare I mention the absence of documentation?

Nah, I'd better not!
Sometimes I really hate my job.
<RANT mode="OFF"/>

On the lighter side: tomorrow is the last day before a week and a half of vacation.

I shall now return to cursing at this code mess and whining and moaning about it.

Cheers!
