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 recently made a typo in my code, quite consistently too.
A coworker pointed it out, we had a laugh about it, and I spent about ten minutes renaming all the properties and variables where the word was used Smile | :)

Another coworker once put the Dutch equivalent of "Are you sute?" (instead of "sure") in a WinForms app.
We fixed it on our own, but no doubt the customer had already seen it Blush | :O

I once found a typo on the pre-printed invoice paper of our customers (it was in the tiny letters).
And an aunt who makes her own soap had a typo on her packaging, which she found after she had quite a few pressed.

A typo could happen to anyone really.
