but it sure is a challenge to figure out WTF the person who did the programming was thinking, as most "programmers" I've encountered are, well, programming-challenged.
Don't waste time; ask what it is supposed to do, and stop the digging into some Egyptian tomb of old knowledge. Find out what is does, and replace it within a day or two.

And that includes numerous third party packages and API's I've had to work with over the years as well. Sigh | :sigh:
Their limitations aren't (prolly) stopping your salespeople from promising the sky. Let them keep their promises or shut the F*** up.

People seem to confuse programming with algorithm and architecture design. Algorithms and architectures can definitely be challenging. Once figured out, yeah, the programming is usually significantly less challenging.
I happen to like those two area's, but it is not challenging. I know what I am doing, just like the surgeon who is going to cut into you. If your vacancy says you looking for someone who thinks that's a challenge, I WILL publicly point you out as a company that is looking for a cheap noob.

If you one of the companies receiving a letter from me looking for a job, then shiver.

I had it with the nonsense, and will call out anyone who provides it.
