Funny Comments in Your Code?
« on: November 09, 2012, 10:28:15 PM »
I was just going over some old code, and had a serious laugh. It was liberally laced with profanity, and just hilarious! :D (Not because of bugs or anything - just curse words used for no real reason other than perhaps to make me laugh.)

Anyone ever go back, read old comments, and laugh?

I was actually digging through some of the first versions of my old executable packer the other day, and found some rather obscene comments here and there ;D. It seemed like I had a thing with putting a comment in with a strange word in it to be able to use the search function to get back there, I guess my editor back then didn't have bookmarks or anything.

It was also interesting to see just how horrible the code actually was -- most of it was written while I was trying to learn C. It works and all, but I would hate to have to fix a bug in a mess like that :-[.

Slightly related.

I know how old code can be embarrassing. :)

Regarding that link - very fun! I looked around a bit, and ended up here:

Seriously funny. And serious. And funny. :)

That was still funny! If you can't swear in comments, what point is there in life? :D

^ It's funny how I'm proud of my solution- then when I go back to it, it's like 'Did I write this?'.

There is an extension for VS that tracks achievements: http://channel9.msdn...vements/visualstudio

I know you're getting away from MS, so not sure how much that will be for you, but it's pretty hilarious, especially since I get them on the xbox and steam...

Well, two years later I am still proud of it, because I have not thought about a better one. Why should I?  ;D
