Windows "Windows XP was the last client version of Windows to include the Pinball game that had been part of Windows since Windows 95. There is apparently speculation that this was done for legal reasons. No, that's not why." I love these stories.

I once had to maintain an old VB6 app, which had features such as a Sub that traversed 12 pages! If that wasn't enough the original dev used the same handful of (badly named) variables all the way through this epic subroutine for different purposes!

But back to the comment thing; this same dev would insist on adding a comment every third or fourth line, for no reason at all that I could fathom. Highlights included things like:

' Check this out Mike!!

' Processing ...


and my personal favourite:

' Say hello to my little friend!


He would also always (and I mean always) end every Function and Sub with:

'And done.


When I find him, there will be blood.
