Never, except for one time.
I was working with a product, which shall not be named but it sounds like Crystal Seaports, and I was working with their API which loaded a file and allowed me to set settings runtime.
The files worked with database tables which were in schema's, but the connection string had to be set dynamically for different environments.
So I set the connection string and then some other property and... The file emptied all schema information! WTF | :WTF:
I searched far and wide for a solution until I finally found some example code that should work.
Copy-pasted it and it worked.
After I cleaned up the code [read: adjusted it to my personal taste] I found it was the exact same code as before except... The other property was now set first and then the connection string.
I switched them around and it broke again, switched them back and it worked again.
I wrote a comment about the code, Crystal R... ehhh Seaports, and the unknown developer who worked on the API.

Nothing good was said in that comment.
I remember using the words "drunk" and "drugged" to describe the unknown developer Laugh | :laugh:
