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.

What's an office?

My reference to being handed a razzie, was a jokey/roundabout way of saying. "I need to keep my feet on the ground." => I am mortal. I make mistakes. I don't care what anyone thinks of me.

Rather than becoming delusional about my status in the world. Ultimately it's all irrelevant when you're dead and gone.

My motivation? I do what I do because I enjoy it. It doesn't matter if I'm not the world's greatest programmer. I don't care.

If you don't enjoy something, get out of it. Find something else to do.

Suspicious | :suss:
Q. Hey man! have you sorted out the finite soup machine?

A. Why yes, it's celery or tomato.
