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.

Laugh | :laugh: No!

It's not a hard and fast rule - it depends on the complexity of what you are doing and why you might need it.
Sorry - but it's an experience thing, not something you can easily take down to a list of "if this and this and this, but not that or that, then..."

It's like driving a car - after a while you get a feel for "Is now a good time to pull out of this side turning?". It's not something you can easily explain.
Ideological Purity is no substitute for being able to stick your thumb down a pipe to stop the water
