I used to #define WW3 1, so that I could write an infinte loop as while (!ww3) {...

That was for my hobby projects. At work I tried to #define ever ;;, so that I could write for (ever) {... but one of our external consultants (needless to say: a quite young fellow) felt this as such a provocation that he went through the entire SVN repository searching for for (ever)s, replacing them with the proper C code style: while(1), adding a nasty SVN comment for every corection he made about "some people" trying to be funny in an inappropriate way.

I really hope that guy never gets in contact with the CHILL language: EVER is a reserved word, and FOR EVER is The way to write an infinite loop, requiring no macro definitions.
