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.

We had such discussion in the eighties when programmers wanted to be artists, writing unreadable code just to be irreplaceable.
If you would be one of my programmers I would fire you immediately for this waste of money and time and delivering error-prone code. I thought those times were gone! Dead | X|
