I ran into a problem last night and off and on thought the day I've been trying to figure out what was wrong. I was getting nowhere. :throw:

Then I thought to myself, "I know, I'll run the test cases." That showed up another bug straight away that was easily fixed and then I bothered to look at the output that NUnit & NHibernate has created and the reason was so blindingly obvious.

FFS. Why didn't I do that in the first place? :suicide:

Me too. I haven't done any in a while but having to write a number of programs to copy over 120TB of data in different formats (ADRDSSU, IDCAMS, IEBGENER, DB2, IMS, CICS, etc) from one VTS to another and each time I think I've got it going well another problem occurs which means a rethink. This is probably why most companies buy a 3rd party product to do this type of thing. Still the contract has been extended another 60 days and will probably be extended again.

You needed to run NGrabABeer and NSitBackAndRelax, that would have given you the solution in due course.

It could be worse, you could have used PayaNindian and ficsitYorself...

Ah, but that is the way to much cheapness, to perform the necessary.

I know a lot of people that couldn't even spell nUnit that call themselves coders. Go easy on yourself, I think you are better than you let on. :hug:
