Recently we managed to "inject" a company as a gold sponsor after all the deadlines have passed. We did it in 20 minutes after 6 phone calls.
The server firewall failed. Someone fixed it on a Saturday morning.
Our invoicing architecture after so many patches fails to follow all the complex branches of the process of issuing an invoice. We somehow manage to still use it fruitfully. And I have big plans for rewriting most of it.
ePay integration was a pain it the ass. Very bad documentation, different undocumented services, support could be better. But it was fun encrypting and decrypting a ton of messages until we stabilized it. We even "support" credit cards (in a way).
Our Turkish speaker delayed his visa application. I called the Bulgarian embassy in Ankara. They were nice, didn't forget to call me back. Actually they kept me updated the whole time. And they issued the visa in less than a day. So kudos to them.
We fight less, work more, plan better, became team players and learned a lot. Organizing a conference is fun.
