Stinky mess

Jeff Vogel has some good tips on how to write more comprehensible code.

Great quote:

This means that, if I make a stinky mess, I’m doing it in my own nest. When I’m chasing down a bug at 3 a.m., staring at a nightmare cloud of spaghetti code, and I say, “Dear God, what idiot child of married cousins wrote this garbage?”, the answer to that question is “Me.”

When I was young and foolish, I wrote stinky code. Now that I am no longer young, my code is better but I am still foolish.
