i'm trying to work on a project we haven't touched in a while but... none of the code is commented and it's been 4 months

:tiredcat2: this is why you're supposed to comment code, huh? finding out the hard way

at this point we should probably give up and just use dokuwiki instead, but we're stubborn and won't :D
wouldn't want to waste 2000+ lines of perfectly good spaghetti after all

@starshines Now you see why "Good code is self commenting" is bullshit.

@AutumnMeowMeow i wouldn't exactly call this "good" code anyway, but yeah, it really is bullshit

@starshines i had to go through the most confusing mess if unconnected spaghetti the other day at work, it was almost impossible to understand
