ASP and the Tower of Babel

Currently working on a 'traditional ASP' application. And the technical term 'Cluster F*ck' certainly springs to mind. The sheer architectural madness of this stuff is staggering. I pity the fool who'll have to maintain it.

Languages and sub-languages need to program this sucker:

  1. html
  2. Css
  3. client-side javascript (for multiple browsers)
  4. server-side VBscript
  5. server-side Javascript (don't ask)
  6. client-side regular expressions (for validation)
  7. embedded SQL

Other Technologies employed:

  1. ASP
  2. ADO
  3. SSI
  4. COM

Better jangle the spurs and get back to work. Yee-ha!
