Your Daily Cup of WTF - tblCalendar + GMail Invites :-D
TheDailyWTF.com: Yesterday, Larry Osterman had to go and take the fun out of yesterday's WTF. So Larry (and everyone else) I hereby issue a challenge for you to justify the actions of Programmer X, as described by reader Jakeypoo : I'll be the first one...

Your Daily Cup of WTF - Array Initializer
It's that time of the day again. Some programmers feel that the code they produce is as much artwork as it is function. I guess I can agree with that, especially after viewing Anges Martin's The City at my local art museum, which reminds us that anything...

Your Daily Cup of WTF - Diet Software
Your daily TheDailyWTF WTF Teaser: I didn't have any non-support-related or non-code-snippet submissions, and I'm trying to shoot for a bit of variety here :-). So, here's a WTF from yours truly. For the past year or so, I've been working with a client...

Your Daily Cup of WTF - StripChar() = "Extreme NIH"
Just incase you're not feeling like typing in TheDailyWTF.com : For those not aquianted with NIH, it stands for N ot I nvented H ere and refers to the tendancy of programmers to avoid using third party tools because, after all, it's something that they...

Your Daily Cup of WTF ... But It's All Plugged In
Your partial cross post from TheDailyWTF.com : I've been programming for quite a long time - since I was about twelve or so. Of course no one in there right mind would hire a seventeen year-old programmer (even one with five years experience), so I got...

Your Daily Cup of WTF - Class IntWrapper
From, of course, TheDailyWTF.com : I've had the pleasure of working with a developer who strongly believes that all classes external to your assembly (even core framework classes) should be wrapped in an internal class. The idea goes something like this...

Your Daily Cup of WTF - Unregistering a COM DLL
From TheDailyWTF.com : Yesterday , we learned that there is an entire Hall of Shame dedicated to bad UIs. But, I must say, I didn't see anything in there that would last half a round with The FileMatrix . I am still completely mystified by that UI .....

Your Daily Cup of WTF - Enter The Matrix
From TheDailyWTF : No, not the the uburbulous deprodication errebelously conceived by "The Architect". I'm talking about the other matrix - The FileMatrix . Agent "G. Nickerson" was kind enough to send in a link to this UI where "simplicity" and "ease...

Your Daily Cup of WTF - That Greedy Sytem Idle Process
Here's an excerpt from today's post: SysAdmin: “Hey, we have some trouble again with the web server – the page are loading really slowly.” I immediately call him on the phone… Me: “OK – have you had a look at what’s...

Your Daily Cup of WTF - færsla
Reader Stefán Jökull Sigurðarson , whose middle name means Glacier (now, how awesome is that!), sent along this chunk of C-code, straight from Iceland. At first, this block of code made absolutely no sense to me. What can I say? My Icelandic...
