So, I'm often the last to know about stuff that everyone else is already doing but Benjamin told me about the Daily WTF a few weeks ago and I have to say that it's just fantastic.

I know a lot of dev's already read this site so I'm not telling most of you something that you don't know but if you're not already reading it then take a look as it's just a great laugh.

Today's posting is a good example http://thedailywtf.com/archive/2004/09/17/1844.aspx#FeedBack and this http://thedailywtf.com/archive/2004/09/10/1696.aspx is a good one as well.

There are some "classics" in there if you search through the archives - this is a good example http://thedailywtf.com/archive/2004/08/11/993.aspx

Not the silent type myself, but...

I once knew a coder who thought that the best way to negate an integer was to subtract twice the value of the variable from itself.

i.e. x = x - x*2
