I look at some code I did a while back and shudder. It started off well

than have to tell a client it's going to take more time to add a feature
and then have them go elsewhere.


Ash et al:

Wait until you have 40 years of code to look back at. I'm not ashamed of any of any of my code for it was "best" that I could do I with the equipment I had.

Of course, reviewing the web sites I did in 1995, and comparing them with with I do today gives me pause. However, the tools that were available then were not what they are today.

So, when you are reviewing/analyzing your past work, you really have two things to consider: 1) What you created; 2) and the technology of the time.
