"Write some new code. Go for coffee. All of sudden you've got old code."
Bernie Cosell: "So I got this reputation — I fixed these mysterious bugs that nobody else could fix. Fortunately, they never asked me what the bug was. Because the truth of the matter is if they'd have asked, "How did you fix the bug?" my answer would have been, "I couldn’t understand the code well enough to figure out what it was doing, so I rewrote it."" :)
