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.

Laugh | :laugh: My exact thoughts when I saw that. But no, much as I'd like it, we're salaried here.

This fellow doesn't work here any more, and as I've gone back to maintain his code I can see that we should kick ourselves in the arse for not holding code reviews when he was here. I could teach a full semester class on Programming Best Practices and use only his code for examples of what not to do.

Not that my code is perfect, but ...
If you think 'goto' is evil, try writing an Assembly program without JMP.
