    It would have to be a Vermeer ( girl with a Perl earring )? (Ahem...)

    Or better, graffiti?

  • T is definitely MTOWTDI
  • Accessible, Flexible
  • hated by purists, loved by everyone else
  • sometimes a quick and dirty five minute job, sometimes an elaborate thing of beauty
  • Plus it has already been done : Perl Monk!!
  • Just a something something...

    Cubism - just enough of the picture to give you a hint of what they're on about, but obscure enough to hide safely.

    Not a painting style, but I voted Other for "... using disappearing ink".

    It's all fine and dandy until someone has to look at the code.

    Getting a little more specific re ramrod's suggestion above:

    The collected wall-works of a three-year-old with crayons.

    trompe l'oeil

    barring this, I would have to say realistic, but either:

    1. done on black velvet
    2. with a group of dogs playing poker
    3. accompanied with the letters 'RTFM' presented subtly in the background

    Pointillism. Deceptively simple, but there's a lot going on that you don't notice at first.

    There's an awful lot of AM postings (mine included) that are a load of Pollocks :-D

    Apologies if it's a bit obvious, but somebody had to say it...

    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))

    I vote Other -- A photograph, taken by Ralph Ellison, of Griffin, the medical student.

    ----
    I Go Back to Sleep, Now.

    OGB

      Even with the help of the omnipotent Google(tm), I have no idea what you're talking about.

      I thought obfuscation was for code, not comments...? ;)

        Try Wikipedia, then. Wikipedia is an omniscient brain. Google is a mass of disentangled neurons.

        Griffin is the name of the character in H. G. Wells' novel The Invisible Man who discovers the means of making people invisible.

        Ralph Ellison wrote a novel called Invisible Man, but the subject matter is entirely different.

        The point being, I suppose, that Anonymous Monk is an Invisible Man.

        Between the mind which plans and the hands which build, there must be a mediator... and this mediator must be the heart.

    Impressionist -- showing just enough detail to give the viewer a place to hang their preconcived notions on.

    ..when I think about it, anonymity seems very surreal. If I as a monk, emulated an anonymous sub, would I suddenly spring into existence...only to be garbage collected later? ..hmmm..now how would Dali have portrayed such an event...?

    Given some code I saw yesterday, how about "just slosh it all over, let the compiler figure it out!"

    Honestly, there are times when I view code (regardless of language) and wonder just how the person who wrote it manages to brush their own teeth without winding up in the hospital.

    Okay, done with kvetching.

    ASCII ART!
    (re: the camel code)
    and to exemplify the "line noise" accusation

      Nice idea! But only if it is good quality ascii-art. And that means Perl-generated :)


      Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

      In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
