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.

I mean _absolutely_ nothing, just like the error messages you posted meant nothing.

I was just mocking about that "obvious" number; you shouldn't take that seriously.

But _if_ I had intended a deeper meaning with the sentence you just quoted, it would be this:

There are some people out there who are writing code just like this "obvious error message". When it comes down to maintenance, no one else could handle that kind of bullsh... horse dung. That's active job security, right there! Shucks | :-\ So, whenever you stumble upon some messages like these, rest assured: There's a dude with a water tight career. He's roared up to a position where his employer is taking crap like that from him, because he couldn't let him go.

But that's just a interpretation of what I wrote. Hell, if I know what I was thinking all the time, I would at least be a miner god. Or totally crazy. Better not find out.
That seems to be a PEBKAC problem, Sir. Why don't you go and fetch a coffee while I handle the operation?
