Not to mention the "enhancements". I just spent the better part of 2
weeks with a fellow who was not for the life of him be able to get a
full report from a cgi on a windows server. I tried recompiling code,
deleting files configuration files, rebuilding configuration files,
anything I could think of.
Suggested tonight that maybe the faulty configuration file was stuck in
memory. Sure enough, rebooting loaded the right one in. I guess reading
a file for a cgi-bin would take too much time.
I've never had this sort of problem with Linux. It makes me wonder what
happens when there is a data update. Are the new reports going to have
old data? I know the code opened the file, read the values, closed the
file. Bloody waste of time.
