The pain, the pain...

Just when I thought I was beyond being surprised by the stupid
decisions, I come to find that somebody chose to route ALL user
interface data on the system through the bus that forces any numbers
into 32-bit integers.
And this is AFTER spending beaucoup time on a grotesque arcane module
specifically to avoid floating-point rounding errors.

It's just astronomically stupid.

This may make you smile, and it is related.

The average human temperature is not 98.6 . This is how they got that figure.

They figured out the average human temperature IN CELSIUS. They rounded it to two decimal places (in celsius). Then they converted to Farenheight, and the answer was 98.6 . See the problem?

I don't know who "they" are, but they are spiritual ancestors of the people with whom you work.
