What's the worst you've pushed yourself through?

It's a continuing saga! Laugh | :laugh:
Currently it's a new reporting app that my non-coding senior partner has dreamed up. She calls me multiple times a day to see where I'm at on it. As long as I continue to make progress, I can keep the beatings nagging whining to a minimum.
To be honest, I've not entirely 'bought in' to this project and it's being done with a new set of widgets, so a bit of a learning curve involved. Luckily, they're really good widgets and really well documented. (actually, one of our sponsors)

I know what you mean though about getting through a process that is tedious and lasts more than a week or so. I just went through a rebranding of a winforms app having close to 100 screens. It wouldn't have been that hard except the designer chose a gradient background and image that required visiting each screen and moving things around to accommodate the new design. The hard part is getting started...once you have a routine, a rhythm, and a purpose it's just about getting it done...and hopefully, a better product for all the effort. At least it makes the time go faster! Laugh | :laugh:
