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.

Well, the timestamps are in order, even if the version numbers are not. This showcases the problems of relying on a programmer-assigned value for versioning.

(This actually looks like someone took code from an existing project and merged it into a new project while keeping the old version numbers.)
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
