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.

GeneralCatastrophic Failure! PinprofessionalBrisingr Aerowing18-Oct-13 11:15 
I am using this message in one of my applications for things that should never happen (but you never know what may happen with Windows), but I guard against anyways.
 
I also include a 'Guru Meditation GUID' so I can find where the issue happened and try and debug it.
 
An example issue: I put a service in a service manager (that uses Unity IoC Container) and get it out a few lines later. If the service is, for some strange reason, not there, I show a message and terminate the application, as something major went haywire.
