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.

With closed environment like I mean: Even the screen size is predefined because the customer receives the medical diagnostic instrument with a built-in computer and a built-in screen which already has been defined in the requirements before a single line of code was written...

So it is not just logically a closed environemtn: It is physically close too.
