I know plenty of 23 year old recent software engineering grads who could write a much more stable and efficient system. More often than not you will find the new programmers are better than the old since they aren't set in the ways of yesteryear and know how to best leverage the newer languages out there. It isn't fair to slight the younger folks in computer science and technology just because they are young.

Now, this system does show signs of being designed by a third-party developer who may have been rushed to production and may have outsourced some of their own development to places other than the US. It also shows signs of being written in a sub-par non-ideal language.
