One of our assemblies works with asset classes across multiple apps. Naturally, like all coders, we tend to abbreviate and so rather than writing methods and events like "Asset_Reclaclulate_OnHand" we would write it as "A**_Onhand", which is fine until you get the "Asset_Wipe_From_Temp" and the ever-popular "Clean_Asset" methods, which I don't think I need to tell you how they were named..

These actually stayed in place for 10 years before the company was purchased and code reviews began to be shared across global teams.. Suddenly we have a swatch of change items for classic naming conventions.. Curious, that.

Still my favorite has to be our first calculation timing class, R.E.F.T. which we told management was "reclacluate every flagged topic", but every one knows means "Recalc every friggin thing". That acronym is still proudly intact. Wink | ;)
