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.

Yeah, but this was really like one tool showing "abc" while another showed "123" and they still somehow had the same underlying value Confused | :confused:
I remember this was a thing on MongoDB, so I just installed Robo 3T just to look at the options and it's Legacy UUID encoding (do not decode or use Java/.NET/Python encoding).
A coworker used another tool with another encoding and we were looking at the same document, but different values Big Grin | :-D
