I have passed through "Why doesn't this code work?" and am now in the land of "How did this code ever work?"

@hugh The infamous two states of a programmer: “I am a god” and “I have no idea what I’m doing”

@hugh In my experience "This code never worked" comes next followed by "How didn't we know this never worked?"

Then it's time to go home.

The above is called, "Tuesday".

@hugh it was worse when I did lotus scripting for IBM way back when. You would save, press go, doesn’t work, select all, cut the code, paste it back in, save, press go, works perfectly exactly as planned!
