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, embarrassing 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.

So the thingie refuses to upgrade, because it does nothing as long as the user wants it to upgrade? What does it do if the user doesn't want it to upgrade? Does it upgrade in this case?
The good thing about pessimism is, that you are always either right or pleasently surprised.
