comment How to explain your non-programmer boss you need to refactor a whole site?
quant_dev is right, wait until you're settled in and had time to look at it, sometimes the way specific things have been handled in a project may not make sense to you right now but will later. But it does sound like there's a heavy amount of work that needs to be done, but if it works then it gives you time to iterate the changes.

comment How often do you take notes, and how are you able to maintain a consistent amount?
+1 for Evernote, I've got things going back 3 years that I occasionally refer to when something tickles the half memory of seeing a similar problem.
