Vasaris, the Fuzzy Dragon [userpic]
It's always nice to have one's faith in humanity at least partially restored..

I kept telling my boss that, well, there was no way any halfway decent programming team (or, even grotesquely incompetent one, actually) would develop Program X in such a way that one cannot fix data entry errors -- it's illogical to assume that any given human is going to get hundreds (or thousands, for that matter, given that I've done just shy of 900 over three invoices) of lines correct every single time.

Thank you, anonymous programming people, for providing a way for me to fix my one line in 1000! Now, if y'all had just provided, oh, I dunno, a help screen (or five), or possibly intuitive delete commands, it would have been fab. Still! Now I can FIX STUFF!

*happy dances*

Seriously, there's nothing quite like looking at 2.5 hours of work and being under the impression that you've got to do it again because 8668 and 8688 look a lot alike when one is tired and is on line 425 of 427.
