re: What's your spookiest coding story? VIEW POST


I was hired to build a replacement for an a system that was a mixture of VB6 and stored procedures. All the business logic was in those stored procedures. There were magic numbers and hard coded dates logic all over the place. Replacing the system was de prioritized shortly after I was hired. I wound up maintaining it for 3 years. I left the company over 5 years ago, but I believe it is still in production. If you drive by the building late at night, you can hear the groans of the current maintainers.
