    California – and I know what the code is supposed to do. It’s to bore someone trying to decipher it to death so they stop trying to figure out what it does. ;)

    Reading this from my chair!
    (Which happens to be in Stirling, Scotland!) ;-)

    Surely one of the best characters HAS to have been Dr. Ramamurti?!?

    I’m reading it from Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan in New York City. I think Bob is the one I relate to the most.

    And this comic reminds me of my first programming job… The other guys had written a framework in C before I started there.

    All over the place there were global variables being passed between functions that didn’t do anything with them. Sometimes a function would call another with the global variable, sometimes with it’s local parameter, which itself was a pointer to the global…

    It was chaos… Sometimes one line of code in a function would work with the global variable, sometimes the local, both of which pointed to the same struct in memory. The senior guy just said they started with exclusively using parameter passing but it got too confusing for them to keep track of pointers…

Tell me what you think!
