One of the codebases I deal with is more than 15 years old. In VB6. With MS Jet as its primary data storage. I'm lucky I get to do most of my time on the 7 year old C++ project instead.

I read an article recently called the Triumphant rise of the shitpic. Pretty much describes this exact phenomenon. Thanks JPG compression and shitty watermarks.

The mojibake in the alt-text is deliberate, right? Right?

Also, I'm disappointed that Hypercard.js isn't a thing. Someone needs to get on that.

Oh man. It would be utterly horrifying / hilarious for someone to try and take a single big VFX shot and actually write down the ENTIRE stack that generated the final image.

Nothing (or at least not too much) is wrong with MongoDB. It's the MondoDB/Excel combination which is terrifying. Are we updating spreadsheets which are stored inside the database?? OR DO WE HAVE A SPREADSHEET WITH A DATABASE SAVED TO EACH CELL??
