I look back at one of the first things I posted on The Daily WTF (tblState) and get a kick out of how naïve I used to be. Back then, most of the worst code I'd come cross would barley make an honorable mention. Back then, I would never have fathomed that code like Scott Neumann's submission even existed. Back then, I didn't fear that I will inevitably have to maintain code like this. Yeah, those were good times back then ...
