Number Crunching


Jump into my pool of misery.

At work, we have this document that gets printed with a ton of numbers (my industry deals a lot with numbers).  On this page, these numbers are all dependent on one another, but the document I'm creating out of them doesn't really say how.  I have to get these numbers to match the numbers from the system we're replacing with our app.

You take one number and you multiply it by a bunch of other things, you add in all sorts of formulas, and the code that it's written in is not that good (frankly, and no, I didn't write it, but I'm stuck figuring it out).   There's all sorts of rounding going on all over the place and I've spent this entire week thus far trying to get them to match.

My eyes are popping out and my head is spinning... WN - is this what it's like to be an actuary?

Sort of, except sometimes the data is either bad or non-existent.
