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.

I just asked a coworker where in TFS the source code is for a utility that is heavily used in our department. He said it wasn't, but he'd email me the source code. Cry | :((

It is a Windows Forms application and there are several forms, but there is one primary form. I looked at the VB (.Net, thankfully) code for that form. I wish I hadn't...

21,662 lines of code, just for that one form. Cry | :((

Now, I just have to figure out what Form2, Form3, Form4, Form5, Form6, and Form7 do. Cry | :((

INTJs never really joke. They make a point. The joke is just a gift wrapper.
