Evolution or Revolution


I spent three days this week updating some 1999-era HTML that worked under Internet Explorer (and nothing else) for several years but doesn't any more. Now it works under everything except Internet Explorer.

The thing is, the original HTML only took me 2 days to write from scratch. Why is it that updating code always takes longer than writing it from a standing start?

Hmm, maybe I'll spend another day redoing the .gif files as .png, so you can actually read the text in them.
