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.

gave it to us expecting that all we had to do was integrate it into our existing system. That's simple, right?


Haha, reminds me of my old CEO. Whenever asking for (sometimes major) code changes he'd always say something like "it's an object, right? Don't you just have to change a couple of lines?"

Apparently someone had explained OO to him in glowing terms at some point. A little knowledge can be a dangerous thing.
