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.

But please don't get me wrong. I have met people who taught themselves and also were very capable of logical thinking. Once a mailman (who only had some experience on a C64) told me about the bugs in a Win32 program, where to look in the code and how to fix them. And then there is that great mass of users who think they know everything...
At least artificial intelligence already is superior to natural stupidity
