... I would rather peel M&Ms in the desert than work with this system.
Sounds like the ERP system used by a previous employer. I told my friends that the name of That Vendor would never appear on my resume or my LinkedIn profile, and it hasn't. I started a new job and found out that their accounting system had been bought out by That Vendor.
*sigh* Sometimes you just can't get away from certain people/things. I only hope that the division managing our system is different than their ERP division.
I found out that at that previous employer that the vendor took over managing several other systems, which included disabling my DBCCs, log monitoring, etc. That Vendor didn't notice an error creep in and lost a couple of months of data.
Congratulations (and more than a bit jealous) that you were able to get away from that menace!!!
Yeah, I have an ERP that's a 4-letter word (in every sense of the word) in my past, too. Given that Sean is now working with Baan that's been sold and morphed a few times, I do not envy the situation at all. The names may have changed to protect the guilty, but the core is still there.
Sean, I feel your pain. I hope that someday you have the pleasure of trying to forget the nightmares.
