My shoulder is killing me

From patting myself on the back.

Had a bug in an application that I didn’t write. Checked the GUI, then the base library, then the database, then the data services classes, and debugged through about 2 or 3 thousand lines of code. This is akin to having a problem with your car not running right and having to pull out a microscope to check each bit of wiring for nicks.

And I found the problem. It even wasn’t a shot in the dark or a lucky guess. I actually used every last troubleshooting skill I had in my arsenal and narrowed down the error and found the wee little bastard. And it all came down to a typo in a SQL filter.

So allow this geek his little victory dance, will ya?
