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.

PEBKAC ! I had forgotten about that one, thanks for reminding me. Yes, I would say that is usually a problem with computers. Also, thanks for reading my rant it makes me feel like at least someone listened.

As for the C# vs. VB debates, I don't really mind. It really gets so funny at times (people will argue the silliest things based on ideas that aren't even true). There is no problem with VB.Net especially for those of us who code using 'Option Strict On' (I'm really biased towards static typing). I find VB preferable because of the way you can easily tell where each block begins and ends. Doing so with this is hard for me: {{{{{{{{{{}}}}}}}}}} Confused | :confused:
