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.

TCP is a great technology to use when you want to avoid all the pitfalls with same-machine process communication or networking technology. Back when I worked in a financial company our software was a 'hub and worker client' type setup (10 or so client processes), each in a different process and potentially on a different machine, sometimes Windows and sometimes Unix/Linux. Using TCP sockets means you don't really have to worry where the clients are.
