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.

This system is almost 4 y/o now. This problem didn't surface until the last year of so, but as stated, it was rare and only produced a minor annoyance for the customers.

Turns out that my double click technique is sh*t.
I practised to get it down from milliseconds to nanoseconds.
Yep got the error.

My experience as well! It should be noted that this web app runs inside of a web browser control in a .NET app installed on their POS touchscreen devices. The users could actually be hitting the button with two fingers almost simultaneously.

Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: And then there is sabotage...around 2 weeks ago, a relatively new user of one of our legacy applications caused an overflow by putting huge numbers into an order screen. The database handled it OK, but the next stage UI did not. Shame on me for not expecting quantities over a billion! WTF | :WTF:
