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.

I see not speelign errors! Laugh | :laugh:

Mind you, I like the quotes round "compiler" - as if they aren't quite sure it is a compiler, it might be a fridge or something like that...

I do rely on spell checkers a lot - I even have a VS extension for string and comment checking - but I like the Chrome one, especially when it picks up grammar problems! Big Grin | :-D
The only instant messaging I do involves my middle finger.

English doesn't borrow from other languages.
English follows other languages down dark alleys, knocks them over and goes through their pockets for loose grammar.
