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 use third party libraries (and tools) whenever I consider that the effort of writing my own solution will outweigth the effort of making the third party solution work, usually I evaluate different solutions and pick the best/easy to use/better reviewed/open one; the only times I avoid a third party library is when their license is incompatible with closed source (I work with closed source systems) which invariably means when they use GPL.
