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.

Seriously, Trust No One! Biggest trap ever, and those who opted out long enough to see the first "Service Pack" crash and burn are laughing at their desks.

The straw that broke the camel's back: My calculator no longer works. ::drops mic::
And I actually liked the way that the calculator looked and functioned, not doing much good if I can't see it or use it...

So that's the new analogy Windows 10 is equivalent to danah gaz's Seagate Drives. Literally this O.S. is performing like it's been run over, drowned and all the other colorful things you mentioned.

And for full clarity I've been working to make sure everything was cushy and ready for Win 10. I've updated my bios, updated all my drivers, everything I could do and that Asus provided to ensure a smooth transition into Win10.. How about this one, my touchpad stops working about 3 minutes after I boot?! And that I was willing to live with because I use a USB mouse anyway. But this picture is getting worse and worse as time goes on. I don't get it...
I never pictured the day Windows would crash and burn. Cause if I'm having trouble, there's no way less tech-ey people will deal with this nonsense at all.
