LinkedIn often automatically pops up a dialogue with your contacts, and encourages you to quickly endorse your contacts. You can also endorse all the contacts it shows at once, so those people probably did endorse you, but not out of their own good will, but rather because it's easy, and the in-thing on LinkedIn these days.

One large existing one, one medium new one and one new small one, but it turned out bigger in the end.
The primary key was luhn checked and all of the 3 code bases had been written and were ready.
I noticed that the Co-Vendor had used an alpha header which wasn't specified and requested clarification as this isn't subject to luhn standards like numerical data. Needed to know how they wanted to process this so that we used the same methodology.
Then they said that there wasn't any alpha's at all and I was asked to pad the special number with zeros.
No probs ...but I immediately started to think about change control.
And how I have achieved this in the past.
I thought about it on my drive home.
Went back to each codebase and re-coded.
The result was zero new lines in all three code bases.
You have to love it, when what you think will involve a days work, is over in a couple of minutes.
I think that it involved about 12 or 15 extensions to existing lines of code.
It is these occasions that I appreciate, however, it is the problem solving that I really like.
There is a conundrum here....
If it is problem solving that I really like then, what the elephant, am I doing, writing it correct in the first place.
No no no, I love a puzzle, but it is the resolution of this, that makes it all worthwhile.
…..and how good is it ….
Especially at the end of the project…
