in reply to There's a level in Hell reserved for ________

There's a level of Hell reserved for Product Managers who decide to change the name of the product after you're in code freeze.

What, you mean you don't code the product name into the conf file?

I'm working on a product that won't be named for a month. And it's being released in a month. And it only has a spoof name for now.

Knowing marketing, it will change names several times before it goes live ;-) So the only solution is to put the name as a var in the conf file.

Fact of life, not level of hell :)

[choroba]: low end, in my talk, will be code that "we don't touch because it works" and noone knows why
[choroba]: I want to present the most bizzare bugs and misfeatures I met when working for a large financial institution
[choroba]: I already gave a similar talk to my friends in a pub and at an internal conference at work and people liked it, so maybe...
[choroba]: LanX: That's the heritage, I can't do anything else
[RonW]: Sounds like some system my employer has "It does exactly what we need it to do and can't afford to risk anything we can't prove is 100% compatible"
[marto]: choroba sounds interesting
[RonW]: james28909 Why not write a Perl program to do the task?
[choroba]: RonW Yes, but then, one day, they needed to switch from FTP to SFTP, and... but I can't give the whole talk away here :)
