Ha ha. There’s this really funny site all about writing unmaintainable code that I found via In the groove. It’s so funny. I love it. Particularly the bit about using ‘i’ for non-int variables. And that wonderful bit about global names:
“Declare a global array in module A, and a private one of the same name in the header filefor module B, so that it appears that it’s the global array you are using in module B, but it isn’t. Make no reference in the comments to this duplication.”
OK. I admit it. I didn’t understand a single word of the whole site. Not one word. They might just as well have been speaking with a Welsh accent for all the sense it made to me. I just wanted to be a proper geek – just for a moment… <Sigh>.
