    actually, looking at your own code of a month ago can confuse you just as much 🙂

    I’m currently working on someone else’s code and they have one function that’s over fifteen thousand lines long… it’s so hard to understand what’s going on…

    Or looking at code of your own that is old enough that your ‘much better now’ and know a whole bunch of new tricks to make it better so that code reuse goes out the window and you reinvent your own wheel.

    And at least in my case its full of justifications for odd ways of doing things.

    // So this looks wierd and you’d think I would do it X way, but I tried that and this and this happened so I came up with this.

    I also often run into

    // I hate this/how this works….but it does the job for now — date 5 years ago

    Reminds me when I was programming class during high school. One of things that we had to was check each other’s code(their was 4 of us, everyone else was learning the basics) and that was a fun ordeal.

    And that’s why we have comments ((;

    This is how I feel looking at someone else’s CAD work. Why the hell would you explode hatch patterns?

    That’s me, a designer with *some* code skills, when I peek into the code to see if I can fix that tiny thing myself.

    `const FFS = ‘For Fucks Sake’;`

    *sigh*

    Even among colleagues in the same I.T. department..

    Use constants instead of literal numbers everywhere pleeeease, FFS.

    Can I just say out loud that programmers that write variables names with ridiculous abbreviations like:

    lrn2cod = ‘learnToCode’

    should burn in hell?

    Code should be self documented. Comments should explain the why, when it’s needed.

    Isn’t this post in violation of rule 0.0?

    The content disregarding the title and superimposed text must be directly related to programming or programmers

    I’m saying this because I’m spiteful, bitter and angry that posts I’ve made have been ripped down for the same reason.

    It is really nice when you compliment yourself and are impressed by the how nice and extendable the code is. If only it happened more often…
