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.

Not necessarily - it could just be an old mouse. One of the things uSwitches can do when they get old is "bounce" more, and if the time between successive bounces is larger than the hardware (or driver) "debounce" period, you get two clicks for a single press. (Normally there is a cap or similar to swallow the quick bounces, but as the contact surfaces get dirtier and more worn the bounces can be further apart.)
