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.

We have the word Cancel and its past tense in our domain.
11 years ago the standard (in US) was to spell the past tense as Canceled.
Now, you'll find people and software spelling it as, Cancelled.
We even have discussions with younger devs saying that it is mis-spelled in the older versions. Oy!
It's like the Master Grammarian-Spellers gave in to the oft mis-spelled version and said, "Screw it, you can speel it either way."

This must be how irregardless came to have the same meaning as regardless.
