"For some reason," writes Graeme Hefner, "someone decided that it'd be best that we write our own bug/issue tracking system instead of using one of the plethora of fully-functional systems available on the market."

"For some reason, someone — perhaps the same someone — decided that the best way to develop this system was a SQL stored procedure called by a Classic ASP page that simply dumped everything to a single page list. Every ticket, ever. This is the core of its entire logic, which impressively uses of SQL, HTML, and JavaScript all in one query."
