I just found this great little article today and have already put it into the Library, but it'll take some time to be added so I figured that I'd post it here.

Pretty good article. :D I've been doing something similar in my latest coding endeavors, and I haven't done the "// Now we're done." in forever now. (I always wondered why folks did that.)

why write maintainable when you can just as easily write a proper unmaintainable code? :twisted:

If the code was hard to write, it should be hard to understand ;).

Heh, that's really funny, tanffn. Maybe we should have a Pascal Obfuscation Contest. ;)

However on a serious note, all software and hardware programmers and engineers should watch this video: David Pogue: When it comes to tech, simplicity sells (http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/7).

Wasn't that a Linus Torvolds quote? :lol:
