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.

Honestly, I'm surprised the issue wasn't pawned off on the XBox App or Notepad developers; had an MSI issue with a "game" installer in the past and it was blamed on the XBox devs even though the game specifically targeted Windows having nothing to do with XBox anything.

Feedback Hub & Insider programs need better filtration for isolation and then passed on rather than the inferred "the buck stops here" reporting services, front-end, desk jockey, cavalcade it persist to appear as.

Had a few instances of error reporting sickness myself, so can relate unfortunately.
Might explain why Microsoft was soliciting for "Insiders" previously as many have probably, like myself, decided to move on to other areas in our existence rather than awaiting canned answers or finger pointing placing blame on someone else's department. Blame != Professionalism (default) --there are exceptions to the rule, but generally (in the case of Windows error and feedback reporting) not too many.
I was unaware of that...
