in reply to The joys of bad code

I had to try to fix an incredibly broken site written in JSP a year or so ago. The code was so bad, I don't think the guy could've had a hope of passing a first year University paper, let alone coding something that was supposed to make money...

The highlight for me was a dropdown box that had an onChange Javascript event that built SQL statements on the browser!

[choroba]: Dangers of WFH: a mailman rings, brings a parcel for my wife, I need to go outside, take my son with me, sign a paper *and* into the postman's mobile app, get back. Guess what the soup was doing meanwhiles?
[Discipulus]: soup without heat protections as CPUs are doomed to burned..
[1nickt]: The dangers of milk-based soup, you mean?
[Corion]: choroba: Ouch! But you don't need that many external events for that. I have on several occasions set up milk to cook and then programmed a bit, only to find the milk burned and congealed over the stove :-/
[choroba]: it's still edible, just need to scour the pot
[1nickt]: Corion I have a large site I need to check for broken links and absolute links. Making a scraper is easy of course; a spider that crawls a whole site is a little more involved ... I was planning a queue-based tool. Intersted to see what you do...
