The most challenging clock to program?

In reading Purp's post, he mentioned the Irritrol MC-Plus-A, has there ever
been a harder clock to work with? I've done Touch Commands, Total Controls,
Rain Masters...but that MC, made me feel humble!

Remember the old Johns Manville controller with the DIP switches and the little log book attached to the face panel? Griswold had some that were kinda fun too. And don't forget some of those early Superior solid state models.
The MC+ is right up there with those brain-strainers.

I'd forgotten about Griswold & I remembered the Weather-Matic mechanical
with a million knobs!

Buckner didn't make the list? The digital pad buckner (I think 22 stations) was my fav to hunt through and figure out who had been in behind me and screwed everything up.
