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.

The first microprocessor I ever played with was an 1802. My stepdad bought a COSMAC ELF-II board, which included a hex keypad and two 7-segment displays. He bought a KSR-33 teletype and got it working with the ELF-II, and even machined an alternate gear for it that sped it up. We fat-fingered a Tiny BASIC interpreter (a whopping 1.5K) into the ELF-II's RAM with the hex keypad and used that for programming. We kept the machine's RAM alive using a car battery.

As they say, good times. Big Grin | :-D
