comment Best practice for generating referral codes?
Yes, looking for referrals via web and email, so something more readable. I was imagining something like a PURL, but what would the PURL look like? Is there a best practice to generate them?

comment How can I sell a legacy program rewrite to the business?
What about when we just don't have the time to stealth project? I agree that is a good method, but these days we're pretty understaffed and would be difficult to find time to pull that off.

Thanks for a good response. Well our team has developer many applications and we've seen other rewrites through on much smaller applications though. My team is also convinced we need a rewrite. I agree with the improve as you go model, but we've done as much of that as we can without a rewrite already. The code isn't well designed for component updates though.
