When **Vladimir **first received his orders, the blood drained from his face. He was to take the legacy VB5 application, a system used daily by scores of users daily, and uplift it to C++.

After reviewing a few parts of the application, things began looking hopeless, however there was some good news! Vladimir had a department full of developers at his disposal and most of them had a hand in the creating and maintenance of the application.

After finding the following snippet of code, he printed it out and proceeded to grill every developer who was shown to have touched the source file in he past.

“No idea, go try Henrik,” said Edvard.

“Sorry, you might want to check in with Viktor, he wrote the reconciliation part of the system,” suggested Henrik.

“Nope, did you talk to Simon?” quizzed Viktor.

Simon lead to another developer, who suggested someone else and, skip ahead right on back to Edvard, the developer he had asked in the first place.

Facing a dead end and needing to move on with his life, Vladimir took the cavalier *Oh, just screw it* approach and pasted the code into the C++ app hoping that some day, it wouldn't come down to him having to explain what the code did.
