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.

Oh no my friend, it gets far worse than that Smile | :) A GUID is simply an 128 bit number in 5 chunks of 32-16-16-16-48. GUIDs like {0C2D39CD-F486-435B-BDBA-64A124D04D31} are when the first chunk of 32 bits is converted into hex, then the next chunk and so on, but when you use some dumb-ass third-party system that stores the bytes in a different order *cough*mongodb*cough* then the string representation of the same data can look different in two different systems despite being equal. I know this is more of a UUID issue than a GUID one, but it shows the kind of nightmares you come across when you stray from the Microsoft path.
