How I tricked myself into cracking my own legacy App — and failed.

I jinxed it.

last week, my boss and I were talking about legacy code, technical depth, etc. when I mentioned that I’m proud about an Application I build for a former client, which ran without an incident or production errors for over 4 years.

What now? What did I learn during this challenge?

First of all: that I write damn good code that still runs for over four years without incidents, errors, or complications — which can be easily modified.
