    I guess you are right. No matter what is the answer the answer will be the same.
    I also should say: thanks by the "'coke and whores'", point for us.

[ambrus]: ething that's both cleanly organized and mostly automated.
LanX in train, bad connection
[Corion]: ambrus: Yeah - we're in that situation too, except that there is no time to do the reorganizing :-/
[LanX]: ... so my boss started a project with the newest sun servers and invited the traders to come on weekend to test it... and they were so pleased, that they forced him to keep it in production...
[ambrus]: Corion: sure, this is the long-term plan. The short term is that I have to run this ungodly mess to get results from the new input data today.
[Corion]: ambrus: Most of our "automation" is tied to process exit codes and a shell pipeline :-\
[LanX]: ... a week later they realized that one of the databases - which recorded how much the other banks due to this bank - was not correctly plugged
[ambrus]: Corion: I have no problem with exit codes and shell pipeline. My problem is that the current process requires a lot of manual intervention from me, including editing the source codes.
[ambrus]: (Also a lot of manual intervention by two or three other co-workers, who do other parts of the process.)
[ambrus]: Some of the manual part is unavoidable, but not all.
