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.

The "foot in mouth" thing is figurative, but since you seem to be speaking literally, I would hate to deprive you of the opportunity. I live in Salt Lake City, UT near Liberty Park. We can meet at that park at any time of your choosing where we can test Newton's third law to your hearts content.

As long as we can agree that you've conceded your point that "VB is the problem" by saying that the real problem is the devs who never get past it, then I don't think we are in disagreement at all. As a side note, you can attack VB6 and prior all you want, I don't even care if you make silly blanket statements about those versions.

For your sake, I hope that this is the culture of your workspace.


In my defense, I didn't really have any better options at the time. I would prefer to work in an environment that "separates the men from the boys" so to speak, but for now, that will just have to wait. Even still, we have plenty of very successful products, all written in some form of VB (mostly .Net).

You come across as very angry and mean, so if I offended you please accept my apologies. I'll rescind my comment about you being ignorant and arrogant, as long as it is fully obvious that you are neither.
