I hope you won't take this wrong, but if you were on my team and just changed the  to  you would be stomped all over in a code review!! (And not just by me! Every team member would call you out.)
I dont take it the wrong way and I appreciate it actually will be updated with the compute(f) I understand the right way to do things, I was just not in the mood after a day of debugging but it should be done and there is no excuses.
Again thank you.
