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.

Thanks for the welcome! Smile | :)

Nope, there was never anything more in there. At least as far as I can tell from the source control system.

I found out that there is only one place where the method is used and there the return value is just ignored. I re-factored the method to return void an removed the block completely. Now there is only the code that preceded the try catch.
