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.

this site would be spared a lot of "Questions" that are nothing but code dumps asking for precisely that!
I admire your optimism! Laugh | :laugh:

Given the number of questions posted which could be answered by typing the question into Google and reading the first result, I doubt such a site would have any impact on the people who post the "convert this code for me" questions here.

Even if Chris managed to integrate the converter into the QA form, auto-detect questions about converting code, and automatically offer them the converted code, I suspect the questions would still get posted. After all, you can't expect them to have the time to actually read things on screen - they're far too busy trying to cheat on homework for a course they're not fit to pass. Smile | :)
