Well, I've been working on the project with the eyebleeding database today. It's been... interesting. But productive. I have now, at long last, started producing things from it that work. If I'd rebuilt it from scratch I'd have finished the lot by now, but alas it's a live database that I can't even modify.

Still, I now have a set of four or five forms to create to get info from this database, allow editing, validate the new information and then put it back in. Any other database, this would be simple, or at least easy to tell what nightmarish SQL is needed. With this one? It makes my eyes bleed with cthulhoid horror.

So, one down, some more to go. I say some more because it's so horrific that I keep finding new little terrors that I need to re-create frontends for. Each time I think I've identified what needs doing, a new little bit creeps in.
