The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

So I wrote a short message to Lonmin (the platinum mine owners in SA) earlier this morning, with aim of expressing my displeasure at recent events.

You can imagine my surprise when upon clicking 'Submit Feedback', Outlook Express opened up, complete with 3 email addresses - one each in the TO, CC and BCC fields.

Having checked the source for the page, it's just a form. I Don't know if there's a cheaper, nastier way of doing it than like this (it's an ASPX page) Dead | X| Dead | X| - Not bad for a platinum mine eh?

<form method="post" action="mailto:nmsimang@deloitte.co.za?subject=Lonmin Site Feedback&cc=evermaakv@dtss.co.za&bcc=GregoryN@dtss.co.za" enctype="text/plain">

See here for the live website: https://www.lonmin.com/contact_us/feedback.aspx[^]
Make it work. Then do it better - Andrei Straut
