Joel on Software - Making Wrong Code Look Wrong

Joel Spolsky writes stuff. "Well, duh" I hear you almost saying. He often says things that you think are quite obvious, but that's only after he's already said them; before he said them, you (and I) kept doing the stupidly wrong thing. In his latest essay, Making Wrong Code Look Wrong, he explains why the original Hungarian Notation didn't suck, and provided a bit of history showing how Microsoft managed to f*ck that up too. Along the way he also says (again) "exceptions are bad" and I find myself unable to really argue with that.
