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.

if something went wrong


I don't think that's the responsibilty of this method. That should have been performed before calling the method.

is empty guid


If the method is asked to perform the action, it should perform it.

bites in memory


So what?


Basically, what goes wrong if you remove the check entirely?
It sounds like a case of premature optimization -- if the guid is never empty, then you are actually decreasing performance because you perform the check every time.
You'll never get very far if all you do is follow instructions.
