# 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.

 The multiplier doesn't need to be a prime, it needs to be co-prime to 232. So it just needs to be odd, and it is. The inverse of 487709855 is 2188132191 (proof: 487709855 * 2188132191 = 1). It's a very weak encryption, but it's not incorrect.
