(sheepishly raises hand) Yes

It's even worse when you take a few shots at fixing the problem, throwing code solutions at it all day, just to realize the problem wasn't there or was far simpler than expected. You normally realize this after throwing hundreds of lines of code at it and then figure how to kill the problem in just two or three lines. Roll eyes | :rolleyes: So embarrassing.
