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.

Hee hee!! I just stored a plain text password in an environment variable this morning! Laugh | :laugh: Only temporarily and I have since rebooted.

The password in question is generally protected inside an SSIS parameter file, but I wanted it closer to hand.




P.S. I had to keep it close to hand again today, but instead of doing SET PWD=pa$$w0rd I did pa$$w0rd=PWD for greater security! Laugh | :laugh:
You'll never get very far if all you do is follow instructions.
