    When adding to years old code that someone else wrote and suddenly it works.
    And you don't know why.
    But it works.

    But you have to do it another two times...

    Shitty variable names.

    A lot of the code I work with originated on Alpha Microsystems hardware in a dialect of basic where variable names were limited to 6 characters. Tokens were Rad-50 encoded, which would fit 6 characters into 2 16-bit words. That was the limitation. We still have a lot of those variable names floating around our "modern" code.

    why ? code obfuscation

    24 Jun 2016 Xojo Inc, Pre-Release Testers, Xojo Pro Seeking work. npalardy@great-w...

    naming conventions that include the TYPE that don't get updated when the actual type of the variable is changed

    those drive me crazy almost as much as deliberately misnamed since you're left wondering how the integer is now 1.25 ?????
    and that said variables dont get updated because "it's too much work" ... argggggg !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
