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.

At work they have Windows Explorer set to automatically traverse to a place that I rarely, if ever, need to access. Why?!?
It's because most business users don't care about File Explorer taking a few seconds to open, but they do care that if they break their laptop they may lose stuff, so they want it stored on the network so it's safe and backed up etc, but they don't want to actually have to remember to do anything. So it's easiest if group policy or whatever is set so that every user of every PC gets a default network folder opened unless they do something different.

Then when you, having stored files locally, accidentally pours coffee on your hard drive and loses a month's work, IT can just shrug and say "Your own fault..."! Smile | :)
