    I think that the WTF is hiding under the lower end of the visible code in the form of a default clause. At least that is what I infer from the description above.

  • Chris (unregistered)

    The real WTF is that Talisker is not an Islay malt, it's actually from Skye.

    (It is however very nice and the 18 y.o. is spectacular).

    I actually went to the src browser, and I'm getting a seriously fucked up view of svn/trunk/SubmitToWTF/connect.cs. It looks like after each character another nonsense character was inserted after it.

    Are you trying to get on your own website, because for me this was more of a WTF that today's TDWTF.

    It's in UTF-16.

    Yep. TRWTF is that Alex committed it to svn with property svn:mime-type application/octet-stream

    Slight offtopic: It'd be nice if we had some kind of WTFtracker. To see where your submission currently is. Like "Please wait, your submission is #11845 in the queue. Estimated time of Alex reading it: next century." and "Alex has seen your entry -- not that he cares." and finally "Alex has blessedly rejected your WTF. Nice try though."

    Otherwise you just submit and then sit in the dark wondering if it ever got through.

    It's a new world out there, of course, but a 'fiance' is a male, so likely galgorah is a woman, even when you take into account that we're talking about Massachusetts.

    Ah, so Massachusetts is one of the more progressive states that allows same-sex marriages?

    As in French, a fiancé is male, whereas a fiancée is female. Unless you're a women, of course.

    Not really sure what your getting at here? grabbed my fiance means we would have up and moved.
    So I spent all night checking every single dictionary I could find, within reasonable driving distance and online, and haven't found one yet where "grabbed" is defined as "up and moved with". But don't worry, I'll keep looking; I'm sure to find one yet.

    I will say that this would be so much easier if I was only joking about your choice of words. At least I'd have got more sleep last night. :)

    There is a Laphroaig there - the 10-year-old. As an official Friend Of Laphroaig who has also had the privilege of trying the 15, 18 and 25-y-o offerings, trust me when I say the 18 and 25 are well worth the investment. Oh, and grab the 15 while you can, as the 18 is replacing it...

    Not really sure what your getting at here? grabbed my fiance means we would have up and moved.

    I'll bite.

    First... let's start with the fiancé vs. fiancée thing. Basically, every French word has a bunch of random extra letters on the end. Female versions of words get an additional "e", for luck or something I guess.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fiance http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fiancee

    (Blond vs. blonde is left as an exercise.)

    Second... if your idea of grabbing your fiance involves moving, I either feel sorry for her, or perhaps envious if Massachusetts has some quaint Southern-style local laws of which I am unaware and you're getting out of town after the fun.

    Finally... it's "tequila", not "tequilla" (the double-l in Spanish is its own letter, a rough equivalent of "y", so this is less innocent of a typo than it might seem at first.)

    LOL, nice. I'm pretty sure installing this would be a fireable offence where I work.
    I could justify it by the "need to promote the development of skill in our skill-impoverished programmer labor-force". Or something like that.

    There is an implied threat in my office that truly bad code may very well be submitted. I actually have a list of ASP.NET/SQL WTFery to post when I get the time.

    We had a web developer who, in order to copy the contents of one table to another, created a host of one-dimensional arrays - one for each column. He also did this:

    RecordCount=Records.Count-1
    For x=0 to RecordCount
         Dim Cmd As New SqlCommand("UPDATE table SET field = 'Value'", conn)
         Cmd.ExecuteNonQuery
    Next x

    I've greatly simplified the code here; this developer actually used a large number of intermediate variables, some with inappropriately large scope, to achieve this WTF, which is in fact several mini-WTFs.

    Wait, it's not pronounced "tah-key-ah"? No wonder my Guatamalan human-traffic baby looks at me like I'm an a-hole when I ask him if he wants some in his thippy cup.

    Oh, and "grabbed" is definitely a North Eastern US colloquialism that was appropriately used in the OP's context.

    Thanks, that'll save me some time. Though a clearer choice of words, as in "I'd have fetched my fiance" or "I'd have summoned my fiance", might have avoided my (obviously-insincere) confusion. Then again, who talks like that?

    In all fairness to you, I probably would have used the same words as you did in the same situation, knowing full well that some jerk might come along and make a joke of it.

    What I think he's implying is either your usage of "grab" is way too wide, or common usage of the word is much more narrow. Either way, you're trying to fit a half-dollar in a dime slot.
