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.

GeneralWhat was I thinking Pinmemberdjj5516-Jan-13 2:15 
While editing a much tweaked process that I wrote, I found this T-SQL:
DECLARE @NumDays INT; 
SELECT @NumDays = 
    CASE 
        WHEN @Client = 'Client1' THEN @DaysBack 
        WHEN @Client = 'Client2' THEN @DaysBack 
        ELSE @DaysBack 
    END; 
This is what happens when you go from actual numbers to a variable, without checking the code. Blush | :O
