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.

There are also only 100 levels of recursion in a cursor. Found that out in the poast two weeks when a client's process failed on a stored procedure that was last edited a decade ago.
I’ve given up trying to be calm. However, I am open to feeling slightly less agitated.
