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.

How many hours are dedicated to understand other's logics? What if the documentation lacks of good examples to understand how to get the best of tool?

 
Actually, that can be much worse with an in-house solution, especially once the guy who wrote it is gone. It's all fun and games until there's no one around who knows how it works anymore. At least with a third-party solution, there is likely to be a community of other people who use it and who can answer questions, even if the company that made it no longer maintains it. And...documentation? At least the third-party solution is likely to have some Smile | :)
