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.

They sort of did fix that but they are finding different ways to break things.

Another thing - when I link with static libraries then my apps can't load resources from the libraries so several of the built-in controls won't work. The hits just keep on coming.

The most annoying thing is the fingers are pointed at someone else and there is no way (I have found) to inform the target of those fingers. This means the likelihood of the issues being fixed is minimal.
