Weirdly, I still have screenshots of the SharePoint site they used to track the 'improvements' and other misc. docs. I thought someday, they are going to claim Panorama never happened. Like clockwork, around a year later (we still had performance issues), they did. That's another (short) story.

I'll throw in one of the developers changing code told me the DeptMgr's rage was mostly because of the name, not what it was doing. I was into prefixing namespaces after Transformers (Autobots/Decepticons). OptimisPrime.Models, etc.
When I asked about the KnightRider prefix (why it was OK)
Dev: "I don't know, I think he was a fan of the show too and thought it was cool. He keeps referring to MyLibrary as the 'Fucking stupid MyLibrary'. Nobody ever talks about any functionality issues with it."
dontknowshit294123dI would have asked for a pay increase and then quit.
Sounds like a nightmare.
This is why non technical people, should not be in charge of code. They have no clue and mostly end up trusting those that can make whatever they are selling sound good.
Nanos11087123dReminds me slightly of the time I saved the companies ass because I had created more backups than I was told to, just in case..
