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.

You are right. Time to stop. It's been 32 years since I have been in Salt Lake City and if I hop into a plane to fly half way around the world, then I would hopefully come up with a better reason. And no, you did not offend me. When somebody has a problem, he can come right in. Then we close the door and we will never lose a word again about anything that will be said in the next ten minutes. It may be unfair and certainly impolite, but that does not matter. With those things out of the way it's usually no big deal anymore to figure out what to do.

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.
Ok, lets agree on that.

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.
No need for that. I don't like to make a religion out of my work and don't want to participate in any holy war over it.

You come across as very angry and mean
Angry, yes, but not at you. I did not really notice that I had built up so much steam, but now I'm back on my way to change this.
At least artificial intelligence already is superior to natural stupidity
