Never has a random IRC quote been so true…

<@Logan> I spent a minute looking at my own code by accident.
<@Logan> I was thinking “What the hell is this guy doing?”

Me and Kegan (well, mostly Kegan) have been working on moving client sites over to our new web server. We’ve also taken the time to go through the old websites and ensure that the little blurb in the footer reflects our new name, New Deal Multimedia, LLC, instead of the old Kegans Kandy name.

During this, I have looked at quite a bit of my old code, both PHP and HTMl/CSS. I wont lie, on more than one occasion I found myself thinking “what in the world was I doing?”

Its really interesting looking at how my coding habits have changed over the past 3-4 years. I have seen more than my fair share of code that I am amazed still works.

Perhaps this is why when I go through and do updates for software (Realestate Manager, Automotive Manager, etc) I usually want to start from scratch.

I wonder if in a few years I will look back at what I am writing now and wonder “what in the world was I doing?”
