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.

Good lord, I'm having flashbacks from my last job. We had nearly 500,000 lines of SQL in stored procedures. And I really don't see the need for the "usp" prefix. Is it really so common to confuse a user stored procedure with a system stored procedure?

At least it seems the developers that made this attempt to maintain some sort of style. At my current job, most stored procedures look like they were generated from a designer and no attempt was made to format the code.

I feel your pain.
