Descriptive Comments For The Angry Developer

Descriptive Comments For The Angry Developer

We all know that a picture is worth 1,000 words. We also know that programmers are lazy and typing comments is boring. After reading the following post about “comments from a madman” on Worse Than Failure I started to realize the pure genius of it all.

Here are 3 “descriptive comments” for use whenever you are frustrated and editing another person’s code. They can also be used to give co-workers a good laugh.

They are setup for use as a TextMate snippet — so ignore the $1/$0

The formatting is a bit off on the webpage — use the SVN link below to grab the text file
Public SVN: ascii_comments.txt
svn export http://svn.ubrio.us/public/ascii_comments .
