It's time for one of those posts again. Today's topic (as if it wasn't obvious from the title) is Naming! Feel free to share your memorable naming sightings too ...

Ilia Trendafilov spotted this one. As it turns out, Steve requested a new rule be added to the system. Of course, you'd have to ask him if you really want to find out what that rule is ...

BOOL CSApp::FillDocFmtArrSave(CABDocFmtArr &arr, BOOL bSteve_09_24_2003)
{
  CString strFilterExt, strFilterName;
  CABDocFmtItm itm;
  if (!bSteve_09_24_2003)
  {
    //ED: Snip
  }

  //ED:Snip
}

Next there's Stu Coates who came some rather interesting method names in a core dump after the Backup application on OS X crashed ...

Thread 2:

Of course, it's not just Apple who uses unique names for variables. Vexo took a peek at at the System.Reflection.Assembly class and found this:

Me? I would gone MC Hammer style and named it _CantTouchThis_NaNaNaNa. Wesley Aaron Mason came across this variable from the Really Long Names Department in the Quartz examples for Objective-C:

 (BOOL)applicationShouldTerminateAfterLastWindowClosed:(NSApplication
*)theApplication
{
     return YES;
}

And finally, ChrisC found a rather Sexy (as in SqlCeException Exceptiony) error message.

...

Try
    lobjCommand.CommandType = CommandType.Text
    lobjCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
    For Each lobjItem In list
        lobjItem.Save()
    Next
Catch ex As Exception
Catch Sex As SqlCeException
    MsgBox("Questions.Save : " & Sex.Message())
End Try
