[#HUMOR] Best Source Code Comments ever!!!


I still remember a day (a long ago) when after Debug during several days a piece of code, looking for an impossible error ; in an app that we had done with the great Pedro Santos (@pedromsantos), I arrived to a comment similar to this one:

/ / If you’ve arrived here, you probably have a problem.

When this happens and you sleeping only 8 hours in the last 72, this comment makes your day Open-mouthed smile

It must be in the sense of “shared fear” in which you know that someone else suffered along with you this problem, or something like that… . Since that moment I had much more respect for the comments in the code.

Yesterday I came across an entry in stackoverflow basically dedicated to gather the best. I have 3 that look me great.

   1: namespace Mobile.Web.Control

   2: {

   3:     /// <summary>

   4:     /// Class used to work around Richard being a fucking idiot

   5:     /// </summary>

   6:     /// <remarks>

   7:     /// The point of this is to work around his poor design so that paging will 

   8:     /// work on a mobile control. The main problem is the BindCompany() method, 

   9:     /// which he hoped would be able to do everything. I hope he dies.

  10:     /// </remarks>

  11:     public abstract class RichardIsAFuckingIdiotControl :

   1: // 

   2: // Dear maintainer:

   3: // 

   4: // Once you are done trying to 'optimize' this routine,

   5: // and have realized what a terrible mistake that was,

   6: // please increment the following counter as a warning

   7: // to the next guy:

   8: // 

   9: // total_hours_wasted_here = 42

  10: // 

the best one !!!

   1: // somedev1 -  6/7/02 Adding temporary tracking of Login screen

   2: // somedev2 -  5/22/07 Temporary my ass

How many times I do something ‘temporary’ and last for ever!
