The Weird and The Wonderful

The site is currently in read-only mode for maintenance. Posting of new items will be available again shortly.
   

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.

Mmmh, yeah, there's stuff like that in there too. I'll have to see if I can anonymize it enough to be internet postable. Let's just say someone did not understand object oriented coding and how Java works. We got to use this library before we actually took over developing it as contractors, and all the problems we had with it before are starting to make sense now...
