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.

A company I worked for 15 years ago and I helped build their e-commerce sites still is using classic ASP and the topography of the web pages and querystring values look the same. Only thing that's changed are the images, HTML, and CSS.

I expect W3Schools has a money maker with little growth; so they much the same as my former employer, they don't invest in a mature but profitable asset and could care less about security and performance.
