Spot the Fail
It's time to have a little fun.
Sometimes when I'm programming, I do something so comically stupid that
I feel the need to screenshot the code and share my facepalm moment with
There are a couple guidelines for my flavor of Spot the Fail:
The fail should be spottable even if you do not
know the context of the code.
For trickier ones, the mouse or text cursor can optionally be nearby the
fail to give a hint.
I have collected a few of these screenshots and explanations for your
South, South. Should be North, South.
Classic. Missing break on one of the cases.
Bytes are not 4 bits long.
4. "Code from work"
Case 8 should be [0-7] not [0-8].
It's the cliché break statement again. Seriously, gotta watch out for that.
new T[newSizeX + m_sizeY * m_sizeZ] - the addition should be multiplication.
D'oh! I asked for 1 more character than I should have.
m_tileCountY = value; instead of value should be tileCount.
9. menu item
Tried to press the "OK" button with ALt+O; instead messed up the shortcut.
It's MIME TIME!!
vim spotted the fail for me. Good job vim.
state.user !============== null
It's highlighted in red. Pretty silly.
X and Y are swapped
15. Some Rails Code
syntax error: enr
"C:\out.bin" - accidentally escaping the 'o' but more importantly
it's not even running on windows.
Well, hope that was fun.
On a relevant note, remember when Quixey in an act of hiring PR
if you could spot the fail in 1 minute? Good times.
