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.

Yes. And I think someone was wide awake and wanted to create this littly mystery. AFAIK you can only run one instance of snipping tool. Smile | :)

One other possibility I can think of is a remote desktop session. You could pull up the tool on the remote computer and then be distracted, say by an email, and then fire up the tool on the local machine. The tool captures remote desktop output just as easily as anything else on screen, so I suppose this way you could end up with a capture of snipping tool showing it's fresh capture.
