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.

Oh it's not imagination, I have known coders who thought they had removed some code with embarrassing output, but it made it into production code. Fortunately it was in a rarely accessed part of the code and we found it and got it fixed before end users actually saw it. I now keep telling fellow programmers to not put in in the code unless they want the end users to see it. Inevitably, some of that stuff will make it into production code. Sigh | :sigh:
Just because the code works, it doesn't mean that it is good code.
