I Also Do Birthdays and Weddings

petercooperjr has posted an entry with a number of comments from code at my previous employer. Its kind of odd to have somebody not only find your comments amusing, but to like them so much that they choose to post them on LiveJournal.

NX-2000!

Well, it just seemed kind of wrong to have them just sit there in the code, not amusing anybody but ourselves.

And what's the NX-2000 got to do with anything?

If I saw code at work with comments describing a "Plunge to fiery death?" option box, I'd probably be tempted to throw it into a post also.

I think Pete should start randomly posting messages from Checkerboard's error hall of fame... starting with the dialog box I submitted to them from Fallon asking if the user wanted his program to GPF.

Well, I want to keep Checkerboard's EHOF limited to error messages actually experienced at Checkerboard. (Although, that message from you is in there at the moment.)

What I really want is to host an EHOF on the Internet somewhere, for all the crazy ones I've seen and for others to submit screenshots to. It'd serve as counterexamples of good usability. (The Interface Hall of Shame is nice, but hasn't been updated in a while.)
