A Few Spelling Errors



  • I just came across the comment below in some code I'm working on. With the exception of redacting the name of the company, this is verbatim what's in the file:

    WELCOME TO THE [redacted] GARAGE SALE WEBSITE PROGRAM
    THIS PROGRAM USES A TEMPLATE BASTED SYSTEM TO SERVER MULTIPLE WEBSITE
    OF A SINGULAR CODEBASE.



  •  I prefer my systems basted with templates.  It keeps them juicy and flavorful.

    TO SERVER MULTIPLE WEBSITE

    "Serve", or "Sever"?

    Was this code by any chance not written in an English-speaking country?

     



  • It may have been written by a New Zealander, but I'm pretty sure it was written by an American. Actually, that could explain it.

    I see a lot of mistakes like this in our code comments. Although they all make me chuckle, this particular chunk of comment was too humorous not to post.

    I make this same typo sometimes, fumbling and hitting the R after I hit the E.  "Basted" makes no sense, though...

    That is an unusual typo for "based".


  • I made a post in sidebar a long time ago that some "unusual" comments.  heres a few of them

    You should try brining your systems sometime.  Why do the work yourself when you can let osmosis do it for you?

     Personally I prefer them fried, chopped, up and tossed in some good ole mac & cheese.
