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.

I did that a few years ago. It makes a nice scripting utility. I had to figure out what shortcuts in the IDE were not in the compiler, but that did not take long. Mine worked out well, and I used it in a production app. I added in some safeguards, like making sure the C# script had not been tampered with (lots of opportunity for a disgruntled employee to alter an existing script to wreck havoc on production systems).
