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.

That "feature" may be good, but the implementation is not -- adding a limitation by not writing something.



Say what? You are not "adding a limitation". You are not adding a feature (by not writing something). Or, written in the positive, You need to write something to add the capability. That's perfectly natural and correct.
Truth,

James
