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.

One of the products we are presenting at a trade show tomorrow is around 30 dashboards in swf format with the data URL baked in. (a limitation of the designer) The URLs point to one of our web servers where the logic and raw XML data files reside. I found out this morning that we will not have internet access for the presentation. OMG | :OMG: No connection to the webserver, and the dashboards fail with a nice XML data error. Big Fail!

I told the designer that she was going to have to recompile each one (10 minutes each) for the show and she broke down in tears. Then I remembered a little file named hosts. Ten minutes later, and the problem was solved. Smile | :) Ain't loopback a wonderful thing?
