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.

I don't trust it.
 
Two of us have been working on the same file today, so we agreed he would check his changes in first and I would update mine, merge and commit the merge. I get the go ahead to update, update tells me correctly that the exact same file we've worked on is conflicted. I look at the file. no "mine" or "r.6271" markers anywhere to be seen, but a load of interface implementations are missing. I update again, to no avail. I stubbed out the interface implementations, compiled, ran all my tests and tried to commit only to be told that my file is out of date and needs updating before I can commit so I update again, and hey presto, a handful of marked conflicts in the same file. Nobody else has committed anything in that time. WTF?
 
Last week our build server failed to get the externals we'd set up on a repository, even though a local update got them all. Cue hours of digging around instead of actually being productive.
 
I really hate SVN.
