Set i for the hell of it



  • it's little but still gave me a chuckle:

    public void setParameter(ParameterConfig argConfig) {
          if("".equalsIgnoreCase(argConfig.getName())) {
              int i = ConfigUtils.toInt(argConfig.getValue());
          }
          super.setParameter(argConfig);
      }

    When I asked the person that wrote it why he said "I don't know, the guy told me to copy it from another class so I did."

     



  • Everytime I see some class named like ConfigUtils (or anything else with "utils" in its name), I feel a cold chill down my spine.

    I get that same feeling everytime I see a project with a reference to a library named something like masterbootrecord.dll or biosservices.dll.  You'd be surprised how many times I've found old projects at my work with random references like the above.

    Hahahhaaaa, I loev the way they make sure to check for both upper-case and lower-case nothing!

    And discover the smouldering rubble of our civilisations.
