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've noticed from time to time that JS events can have significant, sometimes measurable, lag times. Since the JavaScript interpreter is single threaded, there is no such thing as pre-emptive multitasking. I vaguely recall encountering a similar issue several years ago, which I resolved by putting the double-postback preventer script in charge of submitting the form.
