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.

Wow, talk about doing it the hard (and wrong) way. I suspect that this is a symptom of the state of on-the-job training in the programming world. It usually goes like "hey here's a new programmer, do this." But I still don't see how one becomes a programmer without learning the basics of SQL. No one likes code reviews, but it's useful for things like this.

Also, I love how @@FETCH_STATUS is global. I once saw an expensive production system blow-up due to a legacy code time bomb in the form of a SP using a global variable like this.
