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.

Pulled the hard disk from a Ubuntu system, swapped it into a different laptop. Very different configuration; about the only thing they have in common is a manufacturer's badge and a QWERTY keyboard.
The first boot took a little longer than usual, but it came up seamlessly.

Try that with Windows!

Cheers,
Peter
