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, embarrasing 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.

That is so true. The intermediate in any craft is out to proove himself and so shows off everything he knows whether it was the best solution for the problem or not. Were as the master shows simplicity and economy, doing more with less.
 
I found this[^] article on the same topic interesting.
